Clemson has been talked about as a school to watch in Zion Williamson’s recruitment for weeks, and the Tigers are finally getting some momentum on the top prospect’s 247Sports Crystal Ball page.
Several pro-Clemson predictions have been logged on Williamson’s page this week, including a big one from national recruiting insider Andrew Slater on Wednesday. Slater is the top-ranked recruiting analyst in the Crystal Ball standings for the class of 2018. He also covered Williamson’s season opener in South Carolina on Tuesday night.
Williamson — a 6-foot-6 small forward from Spartanburg, S.C. — has narrowed his recruiting list to Kentucky, Clemson, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas and South Carolina, and UK — as of Wednesday morning — was still the top school on his Crystal Ball page, though national recruiting analysts have told the Herald-Leader in recent days that his recruitment remains difficult to handicap.
Kentucky is expected to visit with Williamson on Wednesday.
The early signing period also ends Wednesday, and Williamson has made no indication that he intends to announce a choice in time to sign with a college this fall. He is the No. 2 overall player in the 2018 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
