Tatum Trying Hard To Volunteer

Tucker (Ga.) High's Cameron Tatum is trying his best to make his way to a college campus next season. The No. 77 prospect from the Class of 2006 has a college in mind and is hoping to take care of business and play in the SEC next fall.

Cameron Tatum used a stellar senior season to crack Scout.com's Top 100 in 2006. Now he's trying to crack the code of the standardized test in order to be eligible next fall.

"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."
