Memphis Transfer Tarik Black Heads to Kansas


Former Memphis power forward Tarik Black will transfer to Kansas for his final season of eligibility.


Black, 6'9, also visited Duke, Oregon and Georgetown. Black averaged 8 points and just under 5 rebounds per game last year as a junior. Kansas also recently landed a commitment from top overall prospect 6'7 small forward Andrew Wiggins, adding to a 2013 recruiting class that already included four other highly ranked prospects in 6'11 center Joel Embiid, 6'5 forward Wayne Seldon, 6'6 shooting guard Brannen Greene and 6'0 point guard Conner Frankamp. This move further solidifies Bill Self's Jayhawks as Final Four contenders next season.
