Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Tarczewski Off The Table?

Coach Cal's back in town.
Coach Cal's back in town.

Per Adam Zagoria at Zagsblog:

According to multiple reports, the 7-foot center from St. Mark’s (Mass.) will trip to Kansas this coming weekend and Arizona the following weekend, and then decide between the two.

I don't know how that reads to you, but to me it says that UK is no longer under consideration, and neither is North Carolina.

Calipari is turning his attention back to Kentucky and, in particular, to recruiting, which I consider a very good think owing to the lack of commitments for 2012 so far.  That really isn't something to necessarily worry about, Calipari will get his players -- he always does -- but from a layman's standpoint, its fairly easy to conclude that Kentucky has lost some recruiting momentum while Coach Cal has been coaching the Dominicans.  He did a great job with the DR team even though they didn't get a spot in the Olympics this time around (a loss to Brazil put them in third).

I expect Calipari will try to immediately re-establish his momentum with the 2012 recruits and try to capitalize on his experience in South America.
