Memphis transfer Tarik Black to visit Duke followed by Kansas

UPDATE:   

Tarik Black, a 6'9 PF that averaged 8.1ppg & 4.8rpg last season at Memphis will commence his school visits with Duke followed by Kansas this week.

ANALYSIS:

Black is a highly coveted transfer by the likes of Duke, Kansas, Oregon & Georgetown, and will begin visiting those schools this week.  Although Black has just one season of eligibility remaining he is valued by these upper echelon clubs for his leadership, toughness and rebounding - assets not easily located, especially when implementing younger players.  Expect Black to make a decision in the next few weeks, and whoever signs him will definitely have upgraded their frontcourt, even if for just one season.
