Kaleb Tarczewski is weighing a “tough decision” between Kansas and Arizona, according to his AAU coach, John Carroll.
The 7-footer from Southborough (Mass.) St. Marks took an official visit to Arizona this past weekend, one week after he tripped to Kansas for “Late Night in the Phog.”
“The visit went really great,” Carroll said by text. “He really likes Sean Miller’s recruits and Arizona.
“It’s a really tough decision for him. Two great programs and head coaches.”
Tarczewski tripped to Arizona the same weekend Miller’s highly touted 2012 class of Gabe York, Grant Jerrett and Brandon Ashley were on campus. Stephen Domingo, a 2013 forward from San Francisco, also made the trip.
Numerous former Arizona players participated in a scrimmage over the weekend, reportedly including Derrick Williams, Jason Terry, Chase Budinger, Andre Iguodala, Jordan Hill, Jerryd Bayless, Michael Dickerson, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye.
Tarczewski is now home and weighing his decision.
“No timeframe” on a decision,” Carroll said. “When he is 100 percent comfortable then he will make the call.”
