Tasson Chatman, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound senior men’s basketball combo guard from Totino-Grace High School in Fridley, Minnesota, added Kansas on Saturday to a list of five schools he can attend. Huh.
Chatman – He is ranked No. 26 in the Recruitment Class of 2023 by 247sports.com, No. 63 by ESPN.com and On3.com and 69 by Rivals.com – A list reported on Twitter KU, Minnesota, Ohio State, Virginia and Xavier. They also previously listed Kansas State, Texas, Texas Tech, Nebraska, Iowa, Iowa State, Louisville, Marquette, Northwestern, Washington State, LSU, Yukon and others.
Kansas offered Chatman a scholarship on April 27 after his junior season, in which he averaged 13.5 points in a game for state champion Totino-Grace High (26–6). They made an official tour of KU on 24–26 June and also visited Xavier and Yukon, a school that did not make its final five.
“It was my last official visit to Kansas and I had a great time there. The coaching staff was very genuine and they know what it takes to get to the next level and be successful and they believe they can match my goals. can help me reach you,” Chatman told On3.com.
About his journey, he told Shay Wildbur of Jayhawkslant.com: “It was nice and I spent a lot of time with the team. I visited the campus and spent time with the coaching staff. I spent time with Bobby (Pettiford) and Zack Clemens. We went through a day in life. He gets a lot of basketball players and is treated well there too. I think it’s a great school and coach (Bill) Self said I would fit in.
Chatman is the highest-rated prospect from Minnesota State since Jalen Suggs of Minneapolis Academy in Minneapolis, the No. 11 ranked player in the class of 2020 (by Rivals.com), who picked Gonzaga over Keu and others.
