Evaluation: Tarczewski is a mobile seven-footer who has good shot-blocking ability and great rebounding skills. His offensive rebounding in particular is excellent which keeps the possession alive for his team and allows him to score a lot of put-back points. He also uses the up-and-under move in the post very well and does a good job of utilizing pump-fakes in general. He has good hands and balance too which helps him on the block. The two areas he needs to work on are getting stronger (as does almost every high school big man) and his aggressiveness since he has the ability to be a big-time player. He has a lot of potential due to his physical abilities and fundamentals so expect him to contribute immediately at Arizona.
