As the countdown clock to Zion Williamson’s decision ticks toward a conclusion, the announcement is still clouded in mystery.
Two weeks of momentum have cleared the way for Clemson to take a commanding lead in the 247 Crystal Ball. 88 percent of the picks are for Clemson, with the final 12 percent split between Kentucky, South Carolina and North Carolina. Most of the picks are for Clemson, but few of the predictions carry much confidence.
There are two slight developments Matt Jones learned today.
Kentucky was the only school who reportedly did not make an in-home visit this week. That was not the case. Coach Cal paid Zion a visit Sunday after the Vanderbilt game. The other surprise is from North Carolina. A team few talked about at all down the stretch, Roy Williams could pull off a surprise, comparable to what Bill Self did with Andrew Wiggins.
The dunking phenom will finally make his decision around 8:15 on ESPN2. If you are worried you will miss some of the Kentucky-Florida game on ESPN, fear not. The Worldwide Leader expects Williamson’s decision to be done prior to tip-off at Rupp Arena.
