Tharpe Opens It Up, Schools Already Calling

Naadir Tharpe is back on the market. He opened up his recruitment on Wednesday and he's already picking up scholarship offers.

When 14 of the top 25 point guards are committed it's a big deal when one reopens his recruitment and returns to the market.

And that's exactly what happened on Wednesday when three-star prospect Naadir Tharpe decommitted from Providence.

"Basically once I found out coach [Pat] Skerry left it changed how I felt about going to the school," Tharpe told "I was used to always talking to him and once I found out he left it changed how I felt about the school."

Just a day after his decommitment, Tharpe, a 5-foot-11, 160-pound lead guard, has received phone calls from a number of high major programs.

Seton Hall and Rutgers have already offered him a scholarship, while Miami, Indiana, Virginia, UNLV and Wake Forest have all put in phone calls showing their interest.

"I'm excited that I've opened it back up and I can go out there and see what other interest I can get," Tharpe told

Tharpe has a busy camp scheduling coming up, including a trip to Winston-Salem (N.C.) for Chris Paul's camp next weekend. Rutgers and Seton Hall are also trying to get him to visit in the near future.
