NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. — Duke is considered by many to be the heavy favorite for five-star small forward Jayson Tatum, who is still considering the Blue Devils along with UK, North Carolina and hometown Saint Louis.

That said, there has been some buzz in recruiting circles that the Billikens might actually have a shot to keep Tatum home for college.

He said his interest in the local school is legitimate.

“It’s definitely real,” Tatum said from Peach Jam. “A lot of people don’t expect for me to have that school on my list. They think it’s just because I live there. But I love my hometown. I love the school. I love the players, the program, the people that work there, the atmosphere. I’ve visited SLU numerous times.

“It’s a strong possibility that I go to SLU.”

Tatum said earlier this week that he expects to reveal his college decision soon, and that announcement could come “any day.”
