LeRon Black Recruiting Update

2014 Tennessee power forward LeRon Black is starting to receive some major interest, and he is the top recruit in the state. Black is well regarded for his terrific rebounding ability, and he does a great job gathering offensive rebounds.

The Team Thad star is a four-star recruit from Memphis and is one of the top five PFs in the 2014 class. LeRon Black is one of the top 25 recruits in the class as well and has been impressing fans and scouts on his AAU team. He is one of the best players in the region and has received seven offers.

Black has been offered by Connecticut, Georgetown, Georgia, Memphis, Ole Miss, Missouri, and Tennessee. The 6’7″, 200 pound 4 has great length and athleticism. Black plays above the rim, runs the floor in transition, does work on the boards, and he certainly knows how to score.

Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Florida, and Marquette are teams on his school list, and he has received interest from Kentucky. Arkansas is also in the mix in his recruitment that will surely get heated once the bigger programs show even more interest.

LeRon Black plays his high school ball at White Station and schools are gathering to watch him star for his AAU team and drop 20. The top 25 2014 recruit hasn’t received an offer from Kansas, but he may have interest in the school and we’ll see if the Jayhawks decide to pursue the four-star power forward.

The popular recruit with an ESPN Scout Grade of 89 likes Kentucky, but many recruits in the nation like Kentucky. It will be interesting to see if Coach Cal and the Wildcats offer him, as they have shown interest. LeRon Black is so good on his AAU team that it looks as if he is toying with the opposition on the boards at times, that’s how good he’s been playing this year.
