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:

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.
