Play for Frank Martin or Brad “Hotseat” Brownell? Seems like an easy choice, but you know how Clem$on doe$.

Granted Brownell hasn't done much if anything at Clemson, they could make it into the tournament this year.

If he picks Clempson, it’s only because of the family connection and he’s only playing for 1 year.

I don’t know if we’ll get Zion, but I think we’ll get at least 1 highly rated player because of Bowen.

What did I say that doesn't sound sober? I'm saying I don't believe we get him but even with Bowen coming helping our chances since it would give him a chance to play next to another to notch player. I'd love to have Zion, even for 1 year. Could you imagine Zion, Bowen, and a senior Silva as the nucleus of a team? That said I think Clemson has too much of a lead for us to catch them even with landing Bowen, part of that has to do with the family connection to Clemson.

Honestly though, does anyone really know how good he is, other than his dunking highlights? Does he play defense or does he make a living beating up on preppy little white kids in private schools?

This has always been my thought. He’s an athletic freak who is much bigger and more athletic than anyone he has ever gone against. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him shoot the ball, just drive and dunk.

I still think it would be fun to get him but a player like Bowen is going to have a much bigger impact to a team.

That's a good point but he's put on shows in national tournaments I guess we'll find out next year.

He was just on ESPN playing a team from California that had a 5 star player. He went for 37 points and had about 5 plays that might make ESPN top 10. The kid is awesome. Better ball handler than anyone on our team. Incredible foot speed down low and excellent explosion to the rim. Great double pumps when he gets airborne near the rim....and can shot the 3 pointer.

On Saturday following a game on the opening day of the Hoophall Classic, Williamson spoke talked about his impending decision. Among the things reiterated was his final list of suitors is at six – Clemson, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Williamson said Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina were in to visit him within the last week.

I read somewhere that Clemson has been working him harder than SC. I find that hard to believe. I think Frank has worked him as hard or harder than anyone else.

Frank recruits hard but will not suck up to a recruit or focus on a recruit at the exclusion of others.

Brownell needs to do something this year and he needs to land Zion. He has been on thin ice and would be gone already if Clemson was not a football school. Getting to the tournament this year and landing Zion would buy him a few more years.

I feel the same as you.

Mainly because one-and-dones don't work out here because Frank expects them to play defense.

An SEC opponent would double-up on him pretty quick and neutralize him if he didn't play defense.

One-and-done players don't play defense that much.
