Former Hawkeye Hoopster Anthony Tucker to Iowa State?

Hold on, hold on, hold on... I was joking back on March 3rd when I wrote this:

Five Potential Recruits for Iowa State Basketball 2012

But wait! WSUSecurity, a message board member on D2messageboards is stating this may really be happening! Of course, if it's on a message board it must be true right?

WSU says this:
Anothony Tucker of WSU (and Iowa) will be heading back to D1 and playing for Iowa State next year..... Wish him the best of luck... (and before you all judge I'm friends with him and there is more to the story about his stint at WSU that alot of you know)....


and this:
Iowa State reached out to him last year and wanted him to come there after Iowa but he turned them down because he didn't want to sit out a year.... Now he is regretting that and he thinks he should have went to Iowa State... And yes he will be red-shirting next year at Iowa State.... I had about a 2 hr long conversation with him last night and he is pretty excited and knows he has ****ed up and said he needs to not put himself in them situations.... AKA he needs to not drink anymore.....
Tucker has a curious tweet that reads:
"Ha ha let the hate begin."

And if you're curious, Cyclonefanatic is not too pleased about these rumors, which have yet to be verified by Chris Williams or anyone in Cyclone land. Truth or rumor? We'll soon find out. Fun way to spend a Tuesday, hell yes.

EDIT to add this tweet:

RT @trentcondon: Former Hawkeye teammate @Angle4 of Anthony Tucker says tucker will be visiting Iowa St this weekend.

Looks like there's smoke and fire folks!

EDIT to add UPDATE2:

CloneChronicles, an SBNation blog, had these tweets:
We can confirm Anthony Tucker to ISU according to our source
and

No clue if scholarship or walkon player.
Chris Williams, of Cyclone Fanatic, had these tweets:
Per source: No chance that Iowa State has a scholarship available for former Hawk Anthony Tucker. (cont.)
and
If Tucker chooses to enroll to Iowa State and attempt to walk on, the chances of him making the team are still slim.
and
Basically, no school can stop any player from enrolling, paying his own
UPDATE 3: Oh Hey! Looks like a scholly just opened up:

Iowa State men's basketball recruit Odunsi backs off commitment
