Jayson Tatum discusses recruiting, Hoop Hall Classic

Jayson Tatum, who recently retained his spot as the top junior nationally by ESPN.com, finished with 25 points and 14 rebounds in Chaminade College Prep’s (MO) victory over Paul VI (VA) in the finale of the 2015 HoopHall Classic. When asked what coaches have been in to see him recently, Tatum said that UNC head coach Roy Williams was in to see him last weekend. “Duke and North Carolina are very similar. With all of the national championships, final fours, coaches and players they’ve produced.” (Zag's Blog)

V.J. King planning UNC visit

V.J. King is keeping his recruitment options open. The junior small forward is ranked among the top 20 juniors in the nation according to ESPN. He says he hasn’t formulated an official list, but he will be taking visits to Kentucky, Louisville and the University of North Carolina this spring. He also holds an offer from the University of Connecticut, and Huskies coach Kevin Ollie was in attendance Monday to watch. Jayson Tatum's Chaminade Prep squad got the best of Paul VI 88-78 Monday evening, but King was one of the stars of the tournament in a losing effort. (Mass Live)

Hoop Hall: Jaylen Brown Lives Up To Expecations

Every time the nation’s top prospect steps on the floor, he’s expected to perform, but even more so on a big stage. Jaylen Brown, Scout’s top prospect in the 2015 class, did just that at the Hoop Hall Classic on Monday, pumping in 31 points on 13-for-22 shooting and reeling in 12 rebounds. At times, Brown was dominant. The 6-foot-7 wing was aggressive off the dribble and looked to attack every time he got the ball. (Scout.com)

Hoop Hall Day One Rundown: Ingram Impresses

The second game of the day at the Hoop Hall Classic matched up a pair of high-level senior wings, as Brandon Ingram and Kinston (N.C.) High took on Malachi Richardson and Hamilton (N.J.) Trenton Catholic. There’s been quite a bit of talk about Ingram, who helped Kinston pull off a two-point win on Saturday, during his senior campaign and it didn’t take long to see why. Ingram was aggressive, both looking for long-range jumpers, but also off the bounce and showed his deft scoring touch on his way to 22 points on 9-for-17 shooting. (Scout.com)

It's not hype if you can do it, and Chaminade's Jayson Tatum can

Jayson Tatum just might end up as the best player to come out of St. Louis. You don't have to tell me how outlandish such a proclamation sounds, either. It's high school. I get it. Hyping schoolboy players makes me uncomfortable, too. But from everything I have seen, read and heard, Jayson Tatum is different. Like two NBA stars who came out of Chaminade, Bradley Beal and David Lee, he is the real deal, too. (FOX Sports)

Recruiting Notebook: Jaylen Brown returns from UNC

The nation’s top ranked player in the 2015 recruiting class – Jaylen Brown – took an official visit to North Carolina last weekend. Despite being in town for UNC’s biggest and most exciting win of the year, over Louisville, Brown said the highlight of the trip was learning more about North Carolina’s tradition. “I would say the tradition,” Brown said. “They have a lot of it. They have a family environment. A lot of people come back and give back to the program." (Scout.com)

Jaylen Brown Blog: No. 2 ranked senior talks UNC visit

2015 small forward Jaylen Brown: "I had my visit to UNC last weekend and I had a great time! I would give it a 10 out of 10. I met with Coach Roy a bunch of times, the academic advisor, ate at coach’s house, hung out with the players at their dorms and all that. I had a ball! They definitely know how to treat you at North Carolina. Just to be a part of that environment with those fans was special to me. You should’ve been in that locker room after the game! It was just really genuine and hype." (USA Today)
