The Kaleb Tarczewski recruitment is complete.
It took some time, but after taking multiple college visits to Kansas and Arizona the 7-footer made his college choice.
Tarczewki committed to Sean Miller and Arizona.
“Definitely it was a good trip, but it was definitely good to have the weight off my shoulders,” Tarczewski told Scout.com.
“Kansas and Arizona are both great programs with the history and they both have great coaching staffs and their players past and present and future as well,” he said. “It was kind of just a gut feeling for my parents and myself.”
A back and forth recruitment, Tarczewski not only took official visits to his finalists, but also stopped by for unofficial visits. He said the decision was a tough one to make.
“It was definitely a difficult decision,” Tarczewski said. “Kansas and Arizona are both great, great schools. It was definitely tough. It’s all in the voyage and how you look at it. It was definitely a good trip. I’m definitely relieved it’s over.”
Traczewski and Miller got tight during the process and he felt comfortable with the Arizona coach.
“I think he’s a great guy,” he said. “He’s really going to do everything in his power to make me the best player that I can be.”
Tarczewski also cited Arizona’s recruiting class as one of the reasons he opted for the Wildcats.
“The players on Arizona are great people,” he said. “Everyone that I met on both trips great people. I’m really looking forward to being able to play with Brandon Ashley, Grant Jerrett, and Gabe York. I think we are going to have a great team.”
One of the top post players in the 2012 recruiting class, Tarczewski is a talented low post prospect that has developed his ability to score on the block. He also defends the rim well and rebounds his area.
With Tarczewski’s commitment the Wildcats jump to the No. 1 spot in Scout.com’s 2012 recruiting class rankings.
