It was sarcasm. The thread had gotten too quiet.

I don't think he's coming here, but there's also not a 9% chance he goes to Clemson.

Default Re: 2018 MBB Zion Williamson (SC)

This looks like a misprint - but do they know something that everyone else does not. I hope this is a misprint mistake:

Player of the Year
Zion Williamson, F/G, Spartanburg Day, 6-8/210, Jr.
A top national recruit who has verbally committed to play at Kentucky, Williamson averaged 36.8 points and 13 rebounds per game during his junior year. An American Family Insurance First Team ALL-USA selection, he led Spartanburg Day to its second straight South Carolina Independent School 2A state championship, scoring 51 points in the finale.

Misprint, he hasn't verbally committed to anything, except rim crushing.

That's what everyone said a year ago (even 2 months ago). How did that work out?

FWIW, CFM did visit Zion April 15th.

Zion is not transferring to play his senior year elsewhere. Here is his reasoning:

“I just decided to stay home and be around my family another year before I go to college. I’m close with my family and it’s the best decision for me.”

Maybe that gives us some kind of recruiting edge.

Maybe so, but it could also read as him saying he plans on this being his last year around home. Hopefully you are right in that it might help.

I read this as him staying in SC one more year before he goes to college out of state.

The way he said that, it is open ended. He wont go across the country, but this is a recruit that will be tough to go to USC instead of the NC schools, or UK.

He was all Duke a few weeks ago. He's now concerned about Coach K's health and him getting older. So, it's all tied up at the top between UK and Carolina.

I read it as him waiting a year, and then declaring for the draft.

Health only matters for 1 year for this guy. Almost all of the 2017 NBA top 10 draft picks will be 1 and done college players.

He almost certainly goes to wherever gives him the best shot at winning a national championship in year 1....OR...wild card if he doesnt care about that and just wants to be close to home for college because the next 15-20 years of his life might involve living in Portland or Milwaukee and spending Christmases on a plane to Sacramento haha.

If Im in his shoes...id want a ring.

The good thing is that if he does stay in state I believe he's coming to USC. The problem is keeping him in state.

Three CB's recently to Kansas.

If he's not coming here (which seems doubtful) I'd rather see him go to Kansas. That way he's sort of out of sight, out of mind.

Other than being a power with a massive amount of tradition, dominating their conference, and being an NBA factory there's no reason to be attracted to going there for a brief stop before the NBA

I don't. I actually think clemson has a leg up in the race on us although I think he will ultimately end up at Kentucky. He wants to be able to play 1-4 in college. Most the schools recruiting him have promised him that. In an interview he says coach martin told him he would only play the 1-3 spots here because he likes to have 2 big men and that's what they've recruited for.

Hey, atleast coach Martin is honest and not lying to the kid. Have to respect that, but zion is trying to go somewhere that prepares him for the league and wants to play and get experience at as many positions as possible. It's not a huge leg up but it has sort of shifted his focus to the other schools that can offer him more in terms of learning the game and each position.

If coming down to Kentucky and UNC in my opinion. Outside of maybe Duke, I would be completely shocked if he went anywhere else.
