Five-star basketball recruit Zion Williamson made it to Columbia on Saturday night for the South Carolina-Kentucky football game, two days after he had an in-home meeting with Gamecocks Coach Frank Martin.
Williamson — the No. 2 overall recruit in the class of 2018 — met with Martin on the field before the game, which featured two schools still on his recruiting list. Williamson has also had recent visits — either in-home or on-campus — with Kansas, Duke, North Carolina, UCLA and Clemson.
UK’s John Calipari met with Williamson last week and is expected to host the Spartanburg, S.C., native for an official visit to Lexington this coming weekend. It would be the first official visit of Williamson’s recruitment, which also includes scheduled official visits to Duke, Kansas and UCLA later this fall.
