I don’t think it would happen, but Zion, Bowen, and Frank would take us on another deep run. Surely this has crossed his mind. Clem$on is riding a wave right now with their team, but they were just about to fire Brownell. Those fires will be stoked again when the ACC inevitably gives them the smack down they have coming.

I don't think he comes here either, but I'm not sure what's that's based on. Pessimism I guess. If Bowen ends up playing here, that gives Zion the opportunity team up with a fellow elite player. Clemson is better than us by a lot this year, but they otherwise just don't make any sense for him. Maybe he wants the stage all to himself, which he would have at Clemson now. I understand why Clemson kicks our buts in football recruiting, but I can't see why a recruit would choose them in basketball. With all their football success, basketball is even less relevant there than it is here.

Brownell is Clemson's coach? Weird. From what I understand, their coach's name last year was F#$&@+?! Moron

Clemson has a lot of veteran players this year - kinda the same situation that we had two years ago when Carrera, LChat and Kacinas were Seniors, and Sin, Notice and McKie were Juniors. They had all played and'or started the whole time they were on campus and just developed into solid players that knew Frank's system.

I hope that Brownell gets a big raise and extension after this year, because they will not be as good next year, Zion or not. But if Zion goes there, he will get the rock a lot - they will be a young team lacking talent.

Not the way to make a splash if you are a one and done.

Steve Benjamin just tweeted at Zion, and said he is “ready to name January 20th National Zion Williamson Day #gococks”. Lol. I love it. Clemson fans are extra salty at this.

Crystal Ball prediction by media members/ journalists. The way they predict where a recruit will go to play college ball.

Sat down with Zion Williamson on ESPN's campus earlier today. He said he's down to three or four schools, including Clemson and South Carolina, but he hasn't decided yet. Decision January 20.

I'll believe we land him when he signs on the dotted line, that said I know getting Bowen definitely helped our chances I just think there was way too much ground to make up.

If he truly hasn't made up his mind, I believe we still have a shot. he has spent a lot of time in Columbia and with the coaches in the last year. Fingers crossed!

He said he wants to play with at least one other elite player on his team. Does Clemson have one?

Not that I know of. I think they are just a solid all around team this year with some veteran leadership. Pretty much like us last year with the exception of having an animal in Sin which they don't have.
