"I feel comfortable about this one and there's a strong possibility with this one," the 6-foot-5 Tatum said of his most recent SAT attempt. The results should be in this week as Tatum has his fingers crossed about qualifying.
The plan is simple: get eligible and head to Knoxville where he hopes to be a Volunteer. Tatum, who hasn't signed, indicated that he is committed to playing for the Volunteers should he get the score.
"I pretty much think I'm going to Tennessee but we're waiting on my SAT score to see if I'm going to sign or attend prep school. I want to go to Tennessee.
"I think it could be known that I did commit but I haven't signed yet."
Should Tatum come through with the score, Tennessee's Top 10 class which already consists of 4 Top 100 players, would become all the stronger with the addition of a bonafide late bloomer who has big time scoring ability and athleticism.
"That's where I'm going once I get a qualifying score."
