Duke Wished 5-Star Signee Jayson Tatum Happy Birthday On Twitter

In a few months, the nation's No. 4 player, five-star forward Jayson Tatum will be on Duke's campus and a member of the Blue Devils' basketball program.

In the meantime, he'll have to settle for birthday shout-outs from his future squad on Twitter.

Adding Tatum and fellow incoming freshmen Harry Giles, Frank Jackson and Javin DeLaurier to a core that will include Derryck Thornton, Luke Kennard and Matt Jones will make Duke a dangerous team again next year.

If Amile Jefferson obtains a medical red-shirt and comes back next season and Grayson Allen decides to return to school, the Blue Devils might be national title favorites in 2016-17.
