Arizona Center Kaleb Tarczewski Adds Pounds

        Arizona Center Kaleb Tarczewski had one major weakness to overcome before becoming a legitimate NBA prospect: improved weight/strength. He was a five-star recruit out of high school with a brief scouting report reading: polished offensive player, wiry frame. Since arriving in Tucson earlier this summer, the 7-foot freshman has been in the gym essentially every day, dedicating himself to an added 25 pounds of muscle; he is up from 223 to about 250 pounds with 8 percent body fat.

        Tarczewski's new and improved frame will allow Tarczewski to bang down low, locking down opposing centers, allowing Angelo Chol and Brandon Ashley to hold down the 4-spot, and most importantly, Solomon Hill, the team's best player, will move back to his natural position of small forward.
