The five-star prospect from St. Louis has committed to Duke, the reigning national champions. Jayson Tatum chose Duke over Kentucky, St. Louis and North Carolina.
Tatum and the No. 1 ranked player in the 2016 class, Harry Giles, have been rumored to be thinking about becoming a package deal. Let’s hope the Calipari can work his magic and not let this become a reality.
Evan Daniels of Scout.com reported that the Duke staff did an in-home visit with Tatum a day after winning the national title and brought the trophy with them. Daniels believes that the deal has been done since.
Really amazing how Duke has adopted and succeeded with Kentucky's model. Three one-and-dones this past season. More coming down the line.
