The Latest on Zion Williamson’s Decision

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.

    I understand the whole staying home with mom. But he is likely gone after a year and wont be in SC after that.

    Can’t wait! Man, if Zion signs with KENTUCKY – and given the logistics, which bodes well, we are going to be stacked.

    If not, good for Climpsun. Or – the game cokes.

    I hope he does NOT sign with Ole Huckleberry Hound Cheating Mo Foes Extraordinaire class lacking charade of pulling baby blue argyle wool over America’s eyes Cheat-aline- uh.

    Anyone watch Trae Young today? Thank goodness he went elsewhere. Dude took 39 shots, and hit a whopping 14 of them. Five straight possessions he went down and immediately shot it. own the stretch took two contested 30 foot jump shots. Dude will NEVER win at any level. He is going to shoot his team right out of the tournament in round one or two.

    WTF! DUKE???…
    I .mean PUKE?? idk what to say except, WOW. Everyone knows coach Cal is one of the best all around coaches in the game today but if he’s gonna hang his hat on wing able to recruit the top best players then since he’s UK’s coach he has to understand losing these recruiting battles AGAINST DUKE takes things to a whole new level. Always gotta beat Duke!! I know I’m a spoiled UK fan and to just be in the conversation means something however, you gotta beat Duke IDC if it’s in a tic tac toe event!!
