Kaleb Tarczewski to decide in the next 24-48 hours

Something called a JayhawkSlant.com is reporting a rumor that Kaleb Tarczewski will decide within the next two days. According to the Kansas website, Kaleb is down to three schools: Kansas, North Carolina, and Arizona. However, many others believe Kentucky snuck onto Tarczewski’s list with a late push in July. Adam Finkelstein of ESPN said just last week that Kentucky was in Tarczewski’s big three and Kaleb planned to take an unofficial visit to UK soon.

Regardless of where Kentucky stands in Tarczewski’s recruitment, Kansas has always been his leader and there hasn’t been much to show that that’s changed. Kaleb has a very good relationship with the KU coaching staff and he has said before that Kansas just feels like home.

On the other hand, don’t ever count John Calipari out.

We’ll keep an eye on this one.

    this would be a shocker if he chose UK for the reasons stated above…but maybe, just maybe…he’s held off this long until he got the offer of all offers, and now he doesn’t want to wait for the slots to fill ?

    Come on #3, how can you say that? J. Carter never played… This kid will be a stud where ever he goes. He is a FIVE star, was Jared carter a five star? No!
    Remember these kids read the web site and comments.
    I myself would love to have him as a committ, GO CATS!!!

    #3 just likes saying Jared Cater so he sounds like he knows something about UK basketball. These kids are scouted constantly and you dont wish your way into the top 10. I like what I see but unfortunately I dont think he comes to UK. Anybody that puts this guy and Jared Cater in the same sentence deserves not respect for their sports knowledge.

    i’m guessing Bill Self put the press on him … and unlike Teague w/ Pitino, he didn’t laugh

    Dude is gonna be a stud. I say Cal did enough to come in at the last second and scoop him up. All he had to do was offer him and its a done deal.

    Never believe rumors on that kansas site. They make matt jones look like nostradamus.

    If Jared Cater would have played under Cal we would all be surprised. IMHO

    14. It’s not Matt Scott this time. Scott with The Shiver is the one you could bet against in Vegas and die a rich man.

    Go to Kansas and get a free early exit from the NCAA tourney.

    J Carter? Please. Kaleb is a future NBA player… watch him in person and you’ll understand why. (I am hoping he chooses Kentucky personally…)

    LaClair from Kaleb’s small hometown in New Hampshire.

    Coach has shown this young man the love and how much he would like to have him here at UK. If Kaleb doesn’t want to come here then it’s certainly not Coach’s fault and we should wish him well wherever he decides to go. I think he comes to play for the number 1 coach and school in America, THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY and COACH JOHN CALIPARI. Write it down folks!

    Kansas is desparate, they had virtually no recruiting class this year and the one dude in this years is like 100+. KU has lost Lamb, Jones, Wiltjer, and Knight all to UK. Then they thought they were gettin LeBryan Nash, DeAndre Daniels, guys like that and they went somewhere else. You ask me, Self is desparate and has to start bringing in some recruits. Selby was by default cuz Cal didnt want him anymore, but he turned out to be crap so doesnt really help his cause. I can see him going to KU though with their history of big white centers. I think Cal has targets over him, Coleman, McGary. I just wish someone would commit already!!

    3) I went to high school with J Carter, and he could hardly tie his shoes, much less CRAM like this guy does in all his videos. You must be crazy to think hes a J Carter. But if hes deciding soon, sadly, I don’t see the Cats getting the nod.

    You guys realize that most of these “late push” “he’s in with School X” are floated by rival coaching staffs to friendly media members, bloggers and recruiting politicos so when the kid does make the choice he can make a big splash and say he turned down Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, etc in favor of Big State or whatever.

    The kid is good but it isn’t the end of the world if we don’t get him. I would say him committing to KU would help us greatly in trying to get Perry Ellis since KU seems to be up there for him and I doubt they would go to the same school. I really want to see how Wiltjer plays next year to find out if he fits better at th 4 or the 5 and then hopefully get one elite big man to fill the other spot. There are plenty of talented big men out there and he would really be the only target of ours that has committed so far.

    Kaleb is not coming to UK. And anybody who compares him to Jared Carter is deluded. He is a 5 star. He will be good, just not at UK.
