A poster on TBS said he works with Zion's HS coach and said we're trending positively. Frank is supposed to visit him Saturday I believe.

Im glad CFM is getting some face time in. It's going to be hard to impossible to keep him from going to college in NC.

I get that the two aren't the same, but come on. He's saying if you're going to go off and try to earn hardware for one year, do it in your home state.

No need to act stupid.

South Carolina and Clemson are also working hard to keep him home for college — telling him to “Rep South Carolina. Do what LeBron did for Cleveland,” he said — and Williamson has been receptive to their pitches.
Some interesting comments from Martin in there as well, even if it is a UK link.

Hoping for the best. Duke seems to be the front-runner though.

We're better than Duke until proven otherwise. Those 1,000 wins for Coack K don't mean chit now.

Duke will still be an elite team next year. We almost certainly won't

Actually Zion wouldn't get in until the year after next year so Zion has no impact. Maybe if Dozier comes back we'll be on their level next season, and that's still a maybe. If Dozier doesn't come back, not so much.

Time to close it up.

We are not on 247's CB list for Zion. Clemson comes in at 9%.

Why do you continue to pretend to be a Gamecock fan? Also look at the date on Clemson's CB that accounts for their 9%, very very old news. We're in this, I don't think we have the top odds of landing him but we're definitely still alive in this.

You realize that they update recruits CBs like every 3-4 months on average...

No, and if we do it again, I'll be glad to be wrong. That still doesn't change the fact that it's extremely unlikely for us to suddenly become the powerhouse Zion wants to attend. We *might* make the tournament again, and that's optimistic. Literally everyone who isn't waist-deep in garnet koolaid knows this.

Not waist deep in garnet koolaid, I just happen to realize that Frank has a good track record of developing players and that the players we saw at the end of the year who are returning won't be the same players when the season starts next year. I think the reality is we're a bubble team next year.

No, he makes a great point. When you lose your best player - an All-SEC type - plus two other veteran starters, you will suck the next year and have zero chance of making the NCAA tournament, much less winning a game in the Dance.

Which is why we were so bad this year - losing Carerra and the rest of our starting frontline absolutely killed us. We did not have anyone on the All-SEC preseason team, so you know we did not have any talent coming back. It will be more of the same next year.

that's always the plan. I thought more than anything, Frank gave our guys the confidence that we are good enough to do it again if they work hard.
