Five-star sensation Zion Williamson will be on Kentucky’s campus this weekend for an official visit, and judging by some recent buzz, the Cats are in a much better position than previously thought.
Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader spoke to five top recruiting analysts — Jeff Borzello, Evan Daniels, Corey Evans, Jerry Meyer, and Andrew Slater — and the majority said Kentucky is the clear favorite to land the explosive forward from South Carolina. Kansas, which has picked up a lot of buzz in recent months due to their partnership with adidas, didn’t even register on three of the analysts’ top three.
The analysts’ pick for the team with the second best chance to land Zion was a little surprising, but you’re going to have to go to the Herald-Leader to find that out. Then watch some of Zion’s highlights to get hyped for his visit this weekend.
