Oregon Basketball Recruiting: Ducks Target Tarik Black Commits to Kansas

The University of Kansas has a good one, and a big one. After the Ducks signed Mike Moser from UNLV the hope was to get another coveted recruit in Tarik Black, but he turned down the Ducks and will play for the Jayhawks.

According to, Kansas head coach Bill Self announced Tarik Black will transfer from Memphis and has signed a grant-in-aid agreement to play men’s basketball at KU. 

Black, a 6-foot-9, 245-pound front court player from Memphis, Tenn., received his bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership from Memphis earlier this month and will have one year of eligibility at KU.

“Tarik has played in a ton of big games and certainly has had good experience at Memphis,” Self said. “He’s used to winning and can help us in both of our big positions. He can play the four and the five and we look forward to moving him around. He’ll be an impact player that certainly changes the outlook of our team and makes us more versatile.”

Black will have one year to showcase his skills at Kansas with a loaded front court and the #1 Recruit in the Nation, Andrew Wiggins. I’m not sure he made the best decision and he will have the ability to be a ‘playmaker’.

Time will tell.
