The recruitment of one of the top players in the Class of 2016 will be coming to an end soon.
Five-star forward Jayson Tatum will be announcing his college decision within the next two weeks, according to Charlie Marlow of KTVI FOX 2 News in St. Louis:
Spoke with Jayson Tatum today, he said he'll announce his college choice in 2 weeks or sooner.— Charlie Marlow (@CharlieMarlow_) July 7, 2015
I asked Jayson Tatum if he's narrowed his college choice to two schools & he said he's still at four: Kentucky, Duke, UNC & SLU.— Charlie Marlow (@CharlieMarlow_) July 7, 2015
Tatum, a 6-foot-8 wing from St. Louis, is considered one of the best prospects in a loaded 2016 class. The five-star wing and No. 1 overall player on ESPN recently cut his list to Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina and hometown Saint Louis.
Jayson’s father, Justin, was a basketball star at Christian Brothers College High (CBC) in St. Louis. He played at Saint Louis University, and the Billikens appear to really be in the running for the five-star wing, despite going against blue bloods like Kentucky and Duke.
As for 24/7Sports' crystal ball, it looks like Duke is the heavy favorite in this one:
