Tarik Black to Green Bay!

  • Wouldn’t that be grand?! Hey, we may have 2 Jayhawks land in Wisconsin this year. Embiid, ya’ coming?

    Football looms: KU senior Tarik Black hasn’t ruled out playing NFL football. The 6-foot-9, 260-pounder recently spoke with a Green Bay Packers scout after receiving the scout’s number from Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who liked what he saw of Black at a KU game last winter.

    Black, who has no football experience, has heard from three NFL teams as the draft approaches, Yahoo Sports said Thursday. It’s unlikely he will be taken in the draft, but he could attend a team’s minicamp. One problem is he’d like to be a second-round NBA Draft pick.

    “Basketball is my love,” Black told Yahoo. “I’m definitely going to put effort into making basketball my life. But an opportunity presented itself and I want that opportunity to hold.”

    Black joked that no matter what happens, he at least has Rodgers’ cell phone number. For the story go to http://ljw.bz/1kuCEuC.

  • As a Bear fan I would hate to see Tarik in Green Bay!

  • @wissoxfan83 Ah, it’s the dilemma. 🙂

    Actually I do watch the Bears, but only when they don’t play Green Bay. I love going down to Chicago, especially on the sunny weekends when they have soccer at Soldier Field.
