An Illinois College student has been signed by the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team.

Jacob Tucker won the dunking part of the college slam dunk and three-point championships at the Final Four in March. He was invited after a YouTube video of his skills became an Internet hit.

Tucker was a standout at Illinois College in Jacksonville.

His new Globetrotters nickname is "Hops." Tucker is one of 10 players joining the team this year.
