After recently announcing his intent to transfer, NJIT sophomore guard Anthony Tarke has quickly become one of the most highly sought after prospects in the country.
After emerging as one of the top talents in the Atlantic Sun conference last season, Tarke is now hearing from a wide variety of programs, including Kansas, Texas Tech, Kansas State, Texas and Oklahoma State, per a report from The Athletic’s CJ Moore.
NJIT's @AnthonyTarke tells @TheAthleticCBB he's heard from Cincy, OK St, George Mason, St. Bonaventure, Nevada, Maryland, Wake, KU, G'town, Texas, Auburn, Minnesota, G. Washington, Texas Tech, Pitt, UNCC, UConn, Coastal Carolina, South Carolina, K-State, FAU, La Salle & Dayton.

According to the report, Tarke is also hearing from programs such as Cincinnati, Nevada, Maryland, Wake Forest, Georgetown, Auburn, Minnesota and Dayton, so the competition for his services will be quite competitive.
As a sophomore, Tarke led NJIT in scoring with 15.1 points per game, and ranked second with 6 rebounds per game. Tarke scored at least 20 points nine times last season, and hit 41 threes, but the 6-foot-6 wing predominately plays about the rim as a slasher.
Once he ultimately chooses a destination, Tarke will sit out one season, per transfer rules, and then will be eligible for two more seasons.
