Arizona Wins: Kaleb Tarczewski Chooses Wildcats Over Kansas Jayhawks

Arizona got their man.

According to CBS Sportsline, Claremont, New Hampshire native and top recruit Kaleb Tarczewski has chosen to play for Sean Miller and the Wildcats over the Kansas Jayhawks, whom many had as the front runner for his services.

Tarczewski, a 7-foot big man, took his time with the process, eventually deciding to head all the way across the country to continue his basketball and educational pursuits.

The likes of North Carolina and Kentucky were also after Tarczewski but Arizona won out and adds him a Class of 2012 recruiting class - that includes Brandon Ashley, Grant Jarrett and Gabe York - which could put Arizona back among the elite programs in the country where it was once a mainstay. All but York could play in the McDonald's All-American game, turning the game into a public showcase of what Miller is trying to build in the desert.

It won't happen over night, but these four young players are a good start.
