BLOCK of the Year?

Jayson+Tatum+FIBA+U17+World+Championships+UZ1bAZmGO1Rl

The 2016 High School recruiting class is one of the best in the last 10 years. At the top of the class are five guys of tremendous talent and three of those (Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum and Josh Jackson) would potentially be the top three picks in next year’s NBA Draft if they were eligible. All three are playing for Team USA in the Under-19 World Championships and all three are starting because of their tremendous talent. The Cats are recruiting all three and would love any to end up in Lexington, including Jayson Tatum. His explosiveness is unbelievable and he has had a tremendous week dunking on everyone…well except until today’s finals. Tatum went to the basket against Croatia and…well he ended up on the receiving end of the block of the year.

      No. Tatum goes to Duke or St. Louis, most likely Duke. Jackson will go to Kansas. Giles is best shot, but likely goes to Wake or Duke.

    Who is #10 on Croatia? OMG he might have been the best player out there, he also had a monster Jam over Trier. His name was Slavica or something like that. If he has any college eligibility then he might be one and done, he is SUPER explosive with great pace, handle and IQ in addition to a nice jumper! I loved watching him today.
