Jayson Tatum has cut his list to ten schools.
“In alphabetical order Arizona, Duke, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Mizzou, North Carolina, Saint Louis, University UConn, Wake Forest,” Tatum tweeted Monday.
Tatum, who is arguably the No.1 player in the class of 2016, said that Duke is a school that he is looking forward to visiting.
“I really want to go to Duke, I haven’t been there yet,” Tatum told SNY.tv at the Elite 24.
Tatum has also spoken about attending college with two good friends, Harry Giles and Dennis Smith Jr.
“It would mean a lot,” Tatum told SNY.tv in June. “That would be something that would be very special for all of us, that is, if all three of us come together and make it happen. It’s a pretty big piece for me with the relationships to see who you would play well with on the basketball court.”
