Tharpe, who plans to transfer to Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy next season, had a solid spring playing for the adidas sponsored squad and he said he certainly held his own in the 17's division.
"I think it went pretty well," Tharpe said. "We have a real good team. We have Erik Murphy on our team and Nate Lubick. We have a bunch of real high division-1 players on our team."
"I think I've been developing well playing against older kids and me being so young," he continued. "I've been playing against everybody older than me and that's really not a problem for me. I just go out there and play."
"It's still early," Tharpe said about his recruitment. "I really don't know where I want to go. I'm just going to wait it out and see how things go."
As far as campus visits go, Tharpe said he hasn't made many trips. He did attend Connecticut's elite camps last year and he has plans to take a trip to Cincinnati (Ohio) for the Muskeeters camp this summer.
Tharpe spent his sophomore season at Worcester (Mass.) St. Peter Marian. He averaged 26 points a game and reached 1,000 points for his career in late February.
