Kadeem Jack's year comes full circle 

December, 28, 2010
This past year was wild and crazy for Kadeem Jack (Queens, N.Y./CJEOTO Academy).

At this time last year the 6-foot-10 big man was in the midst of his senior season at Rice High School in New York. By the time the season had come to an end, Jack had established himself as one of the top available big men in the Class of 2010 and saw late recruitment from programs including North Carolina, Texas and Memphis as a result.

Despite a flury of late offers, Jack chose to do a post-graduate year at the South Kent School. After a summer that saw him wear a few different AAU jerseys, Jack committed to Rutgers coach Mike Rice just days before arriving at the Connecticut prep school.
