If Williamson selects the Gamecocks, Kentucky will see him at least once. Him along with Brian Bowen (if he gets eligibility) will give South Carolina a good amount of talent and make the rising SEC even tougher. South Carolina is just a year removed from a Final Four appearance so we know Frank Martin could coach them up. Kentucky fans would certainly be worried about that team giving us a “😬” reaction.
A mixed reaction from Kentucky fans here. Disappointment because he didn’t choose Kentucky and “meh” because it means it won’t have much impact on Kentucky. The Wildcats and Tigers haven’t played since 1997 so I wouldn’t count on that happening next season. Overall if it isn’t Kentucky, I’d want it to be Clemson.
t exactly UNC’s forte. To see the Tar Heels land Williamson would be a little puzzling. Kentucky does play North Carolina in the CBS Sports Classic so we would get to see the high school phenom face the Cats.
Kansas-😱 Shock. Kansas is probably the least talked about blue blood when it comes to Williamson’s recruitment. There has been some ramblings that the Jayhawks could shock the world and land the #2 recruit in the country. While this does make things intriguing, Kansas would be the most shocking landing spot in the recruitment.
Duke-😡 This would almost guarantee Duke would have the #1 class for 2018 which would most certainly anger the BBN. The Blue Devils would enter next season with the top three freshman in the country with RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson, and Cam Reddish. This would also raise the question if Coach K has taken over Coach Cal at getting the best recruits in the country.
Kentucky-😀 The BBN would be very happy right before the tip of the Florida game. Williamson would have the potential to be the biggest superstar at Kentucky since John Wall. The commitment would set a great mood for hopefully a great night with a victory over Florida. Gameday, Zion, and beating the Gators would make for a great day in Kentucky basketball! GO CATS!!!
UPDATE: He chose Duke…😡
