Zion Williamson Surprises Some and Picks Duke

The wait for highly touted high school recruit Zion Williamson is officially over and he will be joining the Duke Blue Devils for the 2018 season. Williamson wanted a chance to play for Krzyzewski, the Blue Devils' Hall of Fame coach.

In a stunning announcement Saturday night in Spartanburg, South Carolina, 5-star hoops phenom Zion Williamson announced he was heading to Duke. His decision to join the Blue Devils now gives the university the top three recruits alongside top-ranked player in the class with small forwards R.J. Barrett and Cam Reddish.

People knowing who I am.

Now that his decision is made, Williamson says he will be shutting down the recruiting process. He was featured on the front page of the Sports Illustrated website in August 2017 and caught the attention of celebrities like Drake and Steph Curry.

While many thought that he would be Tiger Town-bound, Williamson admitted that he had to follow his heart - and that his heart was leading him to Durham. He's as well-known as a teenage basketball player can be.

Williamson is far from a flawless basketball player, however. Williamson still needs to prove himself as a floor-spacer, as he's not a great shooter at this point, which will be an important swing skill for him as we move forward. His conditioning will need to improve when he faces far better athletes in college.
