Tarczewski's Recruitment Takes Off

Kaleb Tarczewski will be a prime target this coming July. There's some buzz building around the 7-foot center and he talked to Scout.com about the latest in his recruitment.

Kaleb Tarczewski is making the most of his opportunities.

During three days of play at the NBA Camp in Charlottesville (Va.) the 7-foot big man fought against upperclassman, and more than held his own.

"I think working with all these NBA guys has been good," Tarczewski said. "I've just been working on stuff. This is great competition for me being from New Hampshire. Playing against all the good guys has really benefited me."

"I haven't been to a camp of this caliber, but I went to five-star when I first started," he added. "This is definitely the best camp I've been to."

Playing at a camp of the caliber of NBA Camp prospects will quickly learn what their strengths and weakness are. Tarczewski cited his strength as an area of concern.

"I definitely think I need to get stronger," he said. "I think that's really important because some of the bigger guys have pushed me around a little bit. I think I've done OK, but I still have a lot of work."

Tarczewski may have some things to work on, but he's already being characterized as a high major prospect.

He currently holds scholarship offers from Georgetown, Kansas, Providence, Boston College, West Virginia, Wake Forest, Indiana, Arizona and Georgia Tech.

He also mentioned Duke, North Carolina, Florida and Virginia as schools that were showing interest.

"It's pretty early," he said. "I don't really know too much about my own game so I can't really tell you what I really want in a college. I'm just keeping my eyes open to everything and trying to work on my game as much as I can."

"I've gotten a good feel for a few schools," the 2012 prospect said. "We obviously went to Duke and North Carolina when we were there for the Bob Gibbons tournament. I went to the Kansas elite camp and I've taken tours of Boston College and Providence."

Kansas is a school that has made Tarczewski a prime target and he's noticed the work the Jayhawks have done with their big men in the past.

"Obviously with Kansas they've done a great job with their bigs over the years and that's something that I'm obviously thinking about," Tarczewski told Scout.com.

Tarczewski is planning to attend Boston College elite's camp and is also contemplating a trip to Florida for their Elite Camp.
