Tarik Black interest

Per Jeff Goodman: "Tarik Black drawing interest from Duke, Kansas, Marquette, Miami, Tenn., FSU, UMass, 20 others- per his AAU coach Eric Robinson"

Would be weird to see him in orange and white, but good luck to the young man.

If Stokes is leaving Black or Davis should be the first two Martin calls.

We need to be all over Black. The dude is very strong inside. Memphis' loss is our gain. I hope Martin can land him with or without Stokes.

Keep in mind that's coming from his AAU coach, could be exaggerating a bit.

He's not coming to UT with Stokes still in play, i can't see him as a backup at UT when he was concerned with playimg time in Memphis.

The only restriction Pastner put on T.B. is that he can't play for a school on UM's schedule next year. I'm guessing that would preclude UT from getting him.

The one restriction Coach Josh Pastner placed on Black's transfer is that he won't be allowed to go to a school that the Tigers play in 2013-14 season, whether its an American Athletic Conference school or a non-conference school.

Do we play Memphis? The series ended and Pastner is too chicken to play us.

That would make the whole deal quite ironic. But, I agree, he should be an insurance plan if Stokes decides to leave.

I had heard Gary Parish say a day or two ago that Black had been contacted by two Top 10 coaches. In today's game of player's leaving early, a player like Black can help for one year, even though he hasn't played to his potential. Don't think that it will happen, but I would certainly consider him at UT.

I think Marquette could be a sleeper- he evidently almost went there instead of Memphis, and frankly, I like Buzz Williams.

Well as of now we aren't on Memphis' schedule, and that's what Pastner said, wouldn't release him to someone on their schedule.

I don't disagree with you. Schedules aren't typically complete until late summer/August, so your guess is as good as mine how that transfer restriction would be enforced in bball, regardless of whether the new team is UT or any other school. At this point, Memphis doesn't know exactly who's going to be in their conference, much less who they will play non-conference, so it seems the transfer restriction could be somewhat of a moving target (or moot if in fact Pastner literally means teams that are "currently" on the schedule as you state above).

We better do something. Kentucky's class next year is going to be unreal. Coach Martin better get us some real good players to compete with Kentucky. The bad part is UK has 6 players signed and 5 are 5* guys and the number one player in the nation is still thinking about going to UK. I mean 6 five star players in one year.

No way Kentucky only going after 5 star players I thought he had the same mind set as tn fans only wanting 3 star players that want to be here n then coach them up......lol
