Jayson Tatum to recruit top prospect Harry Giles to Duke?

Five-star small forward Jayson Tatum was expected to make his decision on Monday morning. It seemed as though Christmas had come early for Duke when he announced that he was committing to the Blue Devils for the 2016 season Sunday afternoon.

Whenever one big athlete commits to a top school like Duke, the team begins to get a lot more attention from other big athletes. Tatum plans on trying to help his future team land another big talent, according to College Spun. The number one player in the country, to be exact.

Tatum wants to play with Harry Giles in the worst way. He wants him in Durham with him and I’m sure the defending national champions wouldn’t mind having him either.

“I’ve gotta do a little recruiting myself,” Tatum says re: recruiting No. 1 overall Harry Giles. It’s presumed Giles follows Tatum to Duke.

Giles is a six-foot-eight power forward out of St. Louis and would certainly be a huge addition for the Blue Devils, physically and figuratively.

You have to believe two things if the Blue Devils can land Giles as well as Tatum: 1. They will have the number one recruiting class in 2016 and 2. The team will be winning a championship in the same year as well.
