Right now the staff is all in with Black, there are no concerns with his attitude, in fact the feeling is he would be a great fit on and off the court. There are a ton of schools contacting him so he will have plenty of quality choices.
Good to hear.
Thanks for the info Rowe and Ram!
Ram/Rowe, has there been any mentionings as to when Tarik would like to have this wrapped up?

strae, I'm unaware of a current time frame. What I do know is there are tons of schools reaching out to him so I doubt anything happens in the next few weeks.
What kind of admissions deadlines are these guys working against? I'd imagine there's a firm date coming up in regards to Fall registration.
That's a good question, Ben. Not sure the answer honestly.

I'm not sure what the registration deadline would be, but I know that it's almost always later (and further exceptions are made) for new students - especially athletes.
When I was in school (I played DIII football) we always had transfers come in and register late, even into the first couple of weeks of classes.

I would add the Hoyas to the list of possible suitors.
We are doomed with Gtown in to meddle!
updated transfer list.
Already at 260 and counting, here is the most recent version of the 2013 transfer list. Bookmark this link -- as it'll continue to be updated.
Duke going in-home with Tarik Black tonight. Huge visit, especially with the news of Marshall Plumlee's injury.
Huge meeting.... I THINK this is his first visit..........
Yyyeeesssss!!!!! Get this big boy Coach K!
Big opportunity tonight!
The admissions deadline did not seem to have an impact with Rodney Hood, who did not commit to Duke until July 1st last summer I think. He barely got to Durham in time to start the second summer school session.
But if Black is going to come in as a grad student then maybe the deadlines are different/more pressing?
Not sure if that has been pointed out, but new Minnesota head coach Richard Pitino built a strong relationship with Tarik Black during his days as an assistant at Louisville.
If Black chooses the Gophers, he would step in immediately as a main player with the departure of Trevor Mbakwe.
Basically, Black's decision will come down to whether or not he wants a chance at playing for a national championship.

Looks like Black will be hosting Kansas for a visit as well. Trying to track down more teams, if there are any.
