Will Tarik Black Be Next for the Kansas Jayhawks?

The Kansas Jayhawks landed a very good player today in Andrew Wiggins. Apparently, Wiggins is the No. 1 recruit in the 2013 recruiting class. Well, Kansas may not be done because Memphis transfer Tarik Black was supposed to meet with the program today, according to Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv.

With Wiggins, Kansas will already be considered as one of the best teams entering the 2013-14 college basketball season. With all of the departures, Kansas looked like it may possibly have a down year, but that will likely not happen now. If The Jayhawks land Black, then they will be that much better.

Black averaged 8.1 points per game and 4.8 rebounds per game this past season. The instant he decided to transfer, his name became a hot topic in college hoops. Maybe not as hot as Wiggins, but Black was still a very popular player that many powerhouses in college basketball started to pursue.

It is amazing that Black went from 20.8 minutes per game, to one of the hottest offseason stories so far. Who knows how Black will be used at his new school or which school that will even be.

The best part about Black is that he will not have to sit out a year because he will graduate at Memphis.

Whether if it is the Duke Blue Devils or Kansas or whoever, hopefully Black is able to make an instant impact for his new team because he will only have one year of eligibility to do so. With Wiggins joining the team, Black would be the cherry on top.
