Tucker Vang has fulfilled a lifelong dream by earning a spot on the Kansas men’s basketball team.

“As a little kid, I always wanted to put on a KU jersey and be a part of something like that. Now I get the opportunity to live it,” said Vang, a 6-foot-2 junior guard from Goddard High near Wichita, who accepted a spot in July after serving as a practice player for the Jayhawks women’s team.

Vang’s brother, Tate, attends KU. His father, Pete, played tight end for the Jayhawks from 1990-93 and his uncle, Shawn, was a guard on the football team from 1995-98.

Vang’s mother, Tara, is also a KU graduate. What’s more, Vang’s grandfather, Randy, played football at Wichita State and his uncle, Scott, played football at Iowa.

“He’s been a KU fan his whole life. He was a big KU fan in high school. We always joked about that, anytime KU and K-State played, that kind of stuff,” said Goddard High coach Kyle Taylor.
