Duke Fans Will Love This Video Of 5-Star Freshman Zion Williamson

Zion Williamson take jumpers at Duke.

Duke has an absolutely loaded recruiting class this year - which includes the top three players in the country. This week, video of one of them shooting is going viral, at least among Blue Devils fans.

Zion Williamson is the No. 2 ranked recruit in the country, behind only R.J. Barrett, who is also committed to Duke. Williamson, in high school, was a man among boys. Williamson, who is listed at 6-foot-6, 272 pounds, routinely dunked over opponents who were no match for him physically.

Many in college basketball have been wondering if Williamson's size and athleticism gave him an unfair advantage in high school - and whether he'll still be dominant in college basketball when he's playing against other players his size.

Well, this week, Duke fans got a look at Williamson working on his jumper. Needless to say, it looks good. Check it out:

Williamson, obviously, is going to need to develop a perimeter game if he wants to become a college basketball star and be taken early in next year's NBA Draft. The league has evolved a great deal in the past decade.

Duke is going to be a force this year, even if all three players don't pan out. The Blue Devils will have more talent than any of their opponents every time they take the floor.

Duke's 2019-2020 campaign will open in early November.
