UPDATE: Tarczewski to Carolina


SummerHoopScoop has learned that Southborough (MA) recruit Kaleb Tarczewski intends to commit to the University of North Carolina. The St. Mark's seven-footer first visited UNC last summer while attending Bob Gibbons' Tournament of Champions in North Carolina. He returned to Chapel Hill last week for a 2-day unofficial visit and came away impressed with the campus, staff, and culture. A source close to the situation confirms that, after some disagreement about the timing, Tarczewski and his parents are on the same page. Tarczewski is expected to formally accept his scholarship offer shortly following his unofficial visit to Arizona which ends tomorrow.

Per a source close to the situation:

Kaleb Tarczewski is on an unofficial visit to Arizona today and tomorrow, but the visit to Tucson almost never happened. This weekend Kaleb Tarczewski sought to cancel his trip to Arizona altogether  but was convinced by his father to keep to the original schedule. Tarczewski and his parents are apparently of two minds regarding the rising high school senior's pending commitment. While Kaleb felt more at home on campus at Chapel Hill, both of his parents feel more comfortable with the Kansas program which has been involved for a far longer period of time. A decision has yet to be made. Tarczewski will finish his unofficial visit to Arizona and focus on Sean Miller's program for the next day and a half.
