The hype around Zion Williamson has gotten so ridiculous it’s natural to wonder if he can actually back it up. According to his peers at the USA Basketball minicamp, he can.

Overtime asked the top recruits at the camp what makes Zion so good. Some raved about his freak athleticism, others his high basketball IQ. Don Showalter compared him to Charles Barkley. Duke commit Cam Reddsih lobbied for him to come to Duke. Immanuel Quickley, who is working hard to get Zion to join him in Lexington, simply said, “Zion, you know what’s good. Big Blue Nation, let’s get it.”

By now you know that Zion will have a front row seat at Friday night’s Big Blue Madness festivities. As Quickley said, let’s get it.
