Height: 6’-8”

Weight: 200

Position: SF

Wingspan: 6’-10”

High School (State): Chaminade (MO)

Club Team (Affiliation): St. Louis Eagles (Nike)

Commitment: Duke Blue Devils

Our Take: Against high school competition, Tatum has demonstrated the ability to excel while playing all five positions with success. Especially gifted on the offensive end of the floor, Tatum showcases an old school, savvy floor game with the ability to positively influence the game for his team, via numerous routes. Blessed with ideal size for his position and improving strength and physicality, Tatum is a tough cover for any defender and arguably the player with the best overall skill level in the 2016 class at the present time. It’s quite obvious that Duke has a burgeoning star on the wing with the commitment of Tatum to join their roster.

Class of 2016, Top 100
