A reminder that top UK basketball target Zion Williamson will lead Spartanburg (S.C.) Day against Chino Hills (Calif.) at the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass., on Saturday night in a game that will air live at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
Williamson — the No. 3 overall prospect in the 247Sports composite rankings — took visits to six schools in the fall: Kentucky, Clemson, Duke, Kansas, North Carolina and South Carolina. Clemson has emerged as a major favorite in his recruitment in recent weeks — passing previous favorite UK — and Williamson is scheduled to announce his college decision Jan. 20.
ESPN’s Jeff Borzello interviewed Williamson on Friday, and the 6-foot-6 forward said that he had narrowed his list to three or four schools, though he didn’t specify which schools those were. He did say Clemson and South Carolina are on that list.
