Black is visiting Kansas, Georgetown and Duke this week. Have to guess he's going to Kansas first on his way.
1. Oregon is now one-year U. The Ducks under Dana Altman have made a habit of finding players for one season who can make an impact. UNLV's Mike Moser
Interesting read from John Infante on the graduate transfer situation. Black (or other grads that never transferred) don't actually have to talk a grad program at their new school that wasn't offered at their old school.
"So if a football, basketball, baseball, or men's hockey player has never transferred previously from one four-year school to another, her or she will likely use the graduate transfer exception. If he or she has previously transferred, the waiver will be necessary. And only under the waiver is the athlete required to enroll in a graduate program their previous school did not offer."

Tarik Black article from ESPN.com
Tarik Black doesn't want to talk. At least not yet.
Duke, Kansas, Oregon and Georgetown are among the high-profile programs courting the 6-foot-9, 260-pound forward. But as he criss-crosses the country, taking tours of various campuses, Black refuses to offer any insight into why he's considering certain schools or which programs he likes the most.
Not that he's being rude about it.
"I will not be doing any interviews during this process," Black told ESPN.com in a text message Tuesday. "But thank you for the acknowledgement."
A mature, professional response, to be sure. And that shouldn't come as a surprise. Black, after all, has been through this before.
As one of the most highly-recruited players in the nation coming out of high school in 2010, Black experienced the pressures and attention that go along with being a wanted man. Now he's going through it again following his decision to leave Memphis after three seasons to play his final year of college for another institution.
Any player of Black's ilk would demand attention, but this spring he's part of an even more coveted breed. Instead of sitting out a season under NCAA rules, Black is among a group of transfers who will be eligible to play next season.
Jason King checks in on Tarik Black, Michael Dixon and other transfers who are eligible to play for new programs in 2013-14.
Is that true? Had Knox transferred previously before making his way to UNC?
Tarik starts his Duke visit Monday.
He will be on campus Monday for a visit, huge opportunity for the staff!
I have a feeling this is why K brought Scheyer back on the staff. Who can say no to the guy?
When Tarik leaves here on Tuesday, he'll head to Kansas for his next visit.
Will be curious to see what Duke has in store for Black in the evenings--campus will lack its general vibrancy given Sunday's graduation, but I'm sure there will be plenty in store for Mr. Black. :)
With Black heading to Kansas today, have to think Self will be recruiting from a position of power after landing Wiggins.
