The list of players in attendance already includes the likes of Jabari Brown and Ben McLemore from the Class of 2011, as well as Shabazz Muhammad, J.P. Tokoto, Marcus Paige, Nino Jackson, Perry Ellis and Adam Woodbury from the Class of 2012.

This will be Tarczewski's first Elite Camp experience with any college
program, though not his first visit to the Lawrence campus. During the

fun and also get to work."
Tarczewski currently holds offers from Arizona, Boston College,
Georgetown, Indiana, Kansas and Providence.
