2016 Star Jayson Tatum Talks Schools, Will Commit When ‘Comfortable’

On April 10, Jayson Tatum narrowed his recruitment to four schools: Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Saint Louis. North Carolina is the school that he has yet to check out. “I haven’t visited there yet, but they have a great program,” he said. He’ll make it out to Chapel Hill eventually, but doesn’t have a date picked out yet for that visit or any other official visits he might take. “I don’t have a timeline for my decision or visits,” he said. “I’m not sure when I’ll take officials to Kentucky or North Carolina, but I’m sure I’ll get to those."

EYBL Updates: Giles, Smith, Tatum, Rowan, Bradley, Bridges

The four-stop, Nike-affiliated Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) wrapped up its regular season Monday in Minneapolis. The top five teams in each of the four divisions are assured of advancing to the Peach Jam finals from July 15-19, and a Harry Giles-led CP3 squad finished an EYBL-best 15-2. Fayetteville point guard Dennis Smith Jr., who plays primarily for Team Loaded on the adidas circuit, appeared in nine EYBL games for Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway's Team Penny, which tied for third place in its division with an 11-6 record.

Jayson Tatum, the top recruit in the class of 2016, faces a tough choice

A week later Jayson’s high school off-season will begin two days too soon, when Chaminade loses in the state semifinals, but he has USA Basketball activities to attend, AAU ball to play—and a college to pick. He has narrowed his list to 10—Arizona, Connecticut, Duke, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Saint Louis and Wake Forest—and he’ll soon cut that number in half, with the goal of committing before November.

Maverick Rowan still considering reclassifying

Maverick Rowan's father, Ron, said his son is considering three options: stay at Cardinal Gibbons his final year, come back to Lincoln Park or graduate early and go to college. He has a number of scholarship options from big-time programs and his father said colleges have said they would find a place for his son if he decided to graduate early. That would mean those schools would find a scholarship for him in the 2015-16 season. Some of the schools that Rowan likes are Louisville, North Carolina, NC State, Wisconsin, UCLA, Pitt and West Virginia. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

Minneapolis EYBL Day 1: Harry Giles, Dennis Smith

2016 power forward and North Carolina native Harry Giles continues to put up monster numbers in the EYBL. Playing with Team CP3, the 6-foot-10 Giles had 22 points, 13 rebounds and two steals in a close loss to the New York Lightning and it felt like he was even more productive than that. When Team Penny and 2016’s top point guard, Dennis Smith, battled Houston Hoops and 2016’s top perimeter defender, De’Aaron Fox it gave a chance to see how they would fare against each other.

At 7-feet, 235 pounds with a game that resembles a young Kevin Garnett, it’s not hard to see why DeAndre Ayton is the consensus No. 1 player in the Class of 2017. As far as colleges, a Who’s Who of high-major programs are involved. “You got Kansas, North Carolina, Duke, UCLA, Kentucky...I mean all the big schools have really been working to talk to him.” On June 1, colleges can begin to contact Ayton directly and he knows his phone is going to blow up.

Edrice ‘Bam’ Adebayo Looking to Take More Visits, Cut List

As far as schools, Edrice Adebayo said he’s visited ECU, North Carolina, N.C. State, Duke and Virginia. “Just about the whole ACC,” he said. He has several more visits in mind, but wasn’t ready to disclose them. “I have to sit down and talk about it,” he said. Peartree said Adebayo could soon cut his list. “By mid-summer, end of the summer, we’ll try to put out a list,” he said. (Zag's Blog)

Seventh Woods Says North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida Recruiting Him Hardest

Seventh Woods, the 6-foot-2 point guard from the Columbia (S.C.) Hammond School, said three schools are working the hardest for his services. “I’m wide open as a decision, but probably recruiting me the hardest, Florida just came on strong, North Carolina, South Carolina, a couple more,” he said. UNC just received its Notice of Allegations from the NCAA, but remains in the mix for Woods. Woods was asked if that would factor into his decision. “A little bit,” he said. (Zag's Blog)
