Kevin Knox proved that recruiting experts can be way off with their predictions; however, buzz continues to suggest Zion Williamson will pick Clemson on January 20.Â
All four of 247 Sports’ recruiting experts — including Evan Daniels — say they’re hearing Zion will choose to stay home and play for Clemson, his stepfather’s alma mater.
“Since the news broke Wednesday evening that Williamson will announce on January 20th, nearly every recruiting call has yielded a conversation about the 6-foot-6, 275-pounder,” Daniels wrote. “In terms of where he might land, nearly all of the talk has centered on Clemson. I canâ€™t say that I think heâ€™s definitively going to Clemson, but they are certainly getting all of the buzz.”
Jerry Meyer has Kentucky as his Crystal Ball pick, but is inching closer to changing it.
“Even when talking with reliable sources, I hear a variety of combination of schools who might land Williamson. Only one school has been a constant among my sources and that is Clemson.”
How are the folks in Lexington feeling? According to Matt, not great.
After talking to folks in Lexington today, I get the sense â€œZion to Clemsonâ€ buzz is real. The Jan 20 decision date has led to pessimism. 2 weeks a long time but Clemson is now (for the first time) my pick

Ugh. Please pull a Knox and make us all look back at this and laugh, Zion.
