The No. 1 overall prospect in the class of 2016 (ESPN 60), Jayson Tatum, is fresh off his official visit to Duke where he and his parents -- father Justin and mother Brandi -- took in the Blue Devils' 73-54 win over Syracuse on Saturday.
The five-star small forward is silky smooth, highly-skilled and athletic. Tatum is a high-character young man off the court and a matchup nightmare on it. He has been efficient, very productive and consistent since coming on the national high school basketball scene as a freshman, and we don't expect that trend to change.
We recently caught up with Tatum about his trip to Durham, where the Blue Devils put their best foot forward in attempt to show their commitment to making Tatum their top recruiting priority.
