Jayson Tatum, a 6-foot-6 sophomore guard from St. Louis, already holds scholarship offers from Kansas and Missouri — and he’ll be in Kansas City this weekend for the KC Prep Invitational, which begins Thursday at the Mid-America Sports Complex in Shawnee.
Tatum, who plays for the St. Louis Eagles grassroots squad, will play his first game at 9:15 p.m. on Thursday. One of the top players in the 2016 class, he also holds scholarship offers from Kentucky, Michigan State and Florida, among others, according to Rivals.com.
Another intriguing player to watch is shooting guard Allonzo Trier of Tulsa, Okla., the 35th ranked player in the Class of 2015. The tournament runs through Sunday, and many games can be seen on Metro Sports in Kansas City.
