Nolan Smith trolls UNC player over top Duke prospect

Jayson Tatum, a top recruit for the class of 2016, was expected to commit to the Duke Blue Devils sometime on Monday morning. That news got out and one North Carolina Tar Heel was not very happy about it.

College Spun shared the tweet that UNC player Kendall Marshall posted in response to the rumor and it was pretty apparent that he would not be welcoming Tatum with open arms when the two teams meet.

Marshall seems pretty salty in his tweet of the five-star small forward’s decision, so one former Duke player responded with a classic “trolling” one-liner.

You mad? 👀 lol RT @KButter5: soo #2 play in the country bout to commit to that school. cool

It seems as though the Duke/UNC rivalry never sleeps, even when you have already moved on to the NBA. And yes, Marshall was “mad bro.”

As for Tatum’s decision, it was reported on Sunday that he will be joining the Blue Devils.
