Class of 2016 point guard Jayson Tatum told ChicagoHoops.com’s Scott Burgess that he received a scholarship offer from Kentucky on Monday. Tatum would be the first 2016 prospect to receive a UK offer. Only one 2015 player — Haitian big man Skal Labissiere — has a confirmed scholarship offer from John Calipari.
Calipari checked in on Tatum during last weekend’s Nike EYBL session in Hampton, Va. The 6-foot-6 wing player from St. Louis is considered one of the top players in his class. The major recruiting services have not yet released player rankings for 2016.
