Folks around the Bluegrass are paying close attention to the recruitment of junior shooting guard Romeo Langford, but there’s another top-ranked junior you need to know.
South Carolina small forward Zion Williamson, considered the No. 2 junior in America, scored 53 points last night in a 20-point win. He only missed three three-pointers and knocked down all 24 two-point attempts (25-28). Williamson added 16 rebounds, 3 assists a block and a steal. Even more impressive? He did it against Jalek Felton, a senior 5-star North Carolina signee.
From the opening tip, Williamson was prepared to impress the sold out crowd of 1,500.
John Calipari is recruiting Williamson but has yet to extend a scholarship offer. Duke, North Carolina and Clemson are the top suitors early in his recruitment process.
