A 6-foot-6 internet sensation from Spartanburg, S.C., Williamson has narrowed his list of schools to five - Clemson, Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina and SC. Here are the six: Clemson, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, and SC. The rapper Drake and National Football League star Odell Beckham have both publicly worn Williamson's Spartanburg Day School No. 12 high school jersey.
Along with Barrett, Cameron Reddish is the number three prospect in the Class of 2018 and joining him is Tre Jones. Clemson, South Carolina and North Carolina all were there Thursday to talk with him. "Coach K (Mike Krzyzewski) is the most legendary coach that ever coached college basketball". I was in Italy and people were asking me for pictures, 'Are you Zion?
"He's a good rebounder and ballhandler who excels at taking the ball off the glass to start the break and has a quick first step for his size in the half-court with the ability to attack both sides off the dribble". Williamson is rated as high as the No. 2 prospect in the country and the No. 1 power forward. His work has been featured on Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com, FOXSports.com, CBSSports.com and many others.More news: CJI to head Loya bench

"At 6'6", 275 pounds, Williamson is well-built and can play inside and out. The early expectation at this point is that he will take the one-and-done route with Duke to enter the 2019 NBA Draft as likely one of the top prospects on the board.
Unfortunately, he also felt the fury of Clemson, South Carolina and UNC fans who felt betrayed. The Gamecocks also recently picked up former five-star recruit and Louisville transfer Brian Bowen and reportedly had an in-home visit with Williamson on Thursday.
With most prognosticators predicting either Clemson or Kentucky, the Blue Devils were thought to be a long-shot.
