New Prediction For Zion Williamson, 2018's No. 1 Recruit

The five-star prospect is now predicted to land at Kentucky.

Zion Williamson, a five-star small forward and the No. 1 recruit in 247Sports' rankings for the 2018 class, received a Kentucky offer earlier this week.

Now, the 6-foot-7, 230-pound prospect out of South Carolina, is predicted to land with the Wildcats.

Jerry Meyer, 247Sports' Director of Basketball Scouting, has "Crystal Balled" Williamson to Coach Cal and Co.

Williamson has been dubbed by some as the closest thing we've seen to LeBron James since the St. Vincent-St. Mary's legend was tearing up the high school game.

The South Carolina product loved Kentucky when he visited Lexington, Ky. earlier this season.

From ZagsBlog:

The 6-foot-7, 230-pound power forward arrived Saturday morning for practice and then returned to Rupp Arena for Kentucky’s 79-73 loss to Kansas. Williamson spoke with Calipari and assistant Joel Justus both before and after the game.

“Indescribable, the environment,” Williamson said of the game, which also featured 38 NBA scouts in attendance. “That environment, I just can’t even describe it, it’s ridiculous.”

Williamson is basically a human highlight reel, doing things like this every game:

Williamson is also said to be considering Duke, North Carolina, Clemson, South Carolina, Kansas, Arizona and UCLA.
