Zion Williamson Describes Rupp as “Indescribable” and “Ridiculous”

After visiting Kentucky for Saturday’s game against Kansas, Zion Williamson, the No. 2 junior in America, was blown away with the atmosphere at Rupp Arena.

“Indescribable, the environment,” Williamson told Adam Zagoria. “That environment, I just can’t even describe it, it’s ridiculous.”

Williamson has yet to receive an offer from Kentucky, yet.  He told Zagoria Coach Cal and a few of his UK assistants will visit his home in Spartanburg, South Carolina tomorrow.  A scholarship offer to Kentucky could (and probably should) be extended during the in-home visit.

The 6’7″ small forward is arguably the most explosive player in America regardless of class.  There’s a long way to go in Williamson’s recruitment but he’s also considering Duke, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kansas, Arizona, UCLA and the school his father attended, Clemson.

Joel Justus watched Williamson score 31 points and grab 14 rebounds on New Year’s Eve.  Highlights from the performance are impressive…

…but he’s done better.

    Hope he doesn’t go somewhere else just so he can play zone defense.

    So he describes Rupp as indescribable? Well played, Nick. Well played.

    “I think we should pass on him, and instead of going for one and done 5 star players, go after some 3-4 star guys who will stay around awhile so we can learn their names and win more titles. YES, please go after the top players, but is it totally necessary to go after 1-year five star players exclusively?

    I still believe in Cal, think he’s a great fit for UK, but when he says “players first” he obviously means the ultimate goal is getting players into the NBA, and that really bothers me. If he thinks UK fans really care about that more than hanging championship banners then he’s made a major miscalculation.

    I’m certainly not a Pitino apologist or sympathizer, but it seems like he does more with much less talent in a much tougher league and schedule. So has Pastner, Drew, Miller, etc.etc. Yes, I know how many Final Fours Cal has been to in the last 7 years. But at the end of the day it’s about championships. Dean Smith went to a LOT of Final Fours too but had only 2 championships in 30+ years to show for it. I still support Cal, but there may be cracks forming in its foundation.”
