Zion Williamson, arguably the top player in the Class of 2018, cancelled an in-home visit with John Calipari today due to Hurricane Irma.
According to SECCountry.com:
“We had to reschedule due to the storm,” Williamson’s mother Sharonda Sampson told SEC Country. “My family who lives on the coast is in the direct path and we are with them today.”
She said no new date has been set for Calipari to come and make his in-home pitch to the slam-dunking sensation who is ranked as high as No. 1 overall in the Class of 2018 by 247Sports. The Wildcats, once considered clear favorites to land him, are facing a stiff challenge from Kansas.
To make matters worse, Williamson praised Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski in a blog with USA Today High School Sports:
I had a talk with Coach K recently and I asked him how I would fit into his system with the two players he already has committed in my class.
So he started telling me his original plan for the class and how he’d already planned to get those two players and how everything is working according to his plan. He said that every year he changes his system with new players. He said he was gonna play me the way he played LeBron (James) in the Olympics in 2012 so I did my research!
Coach K gave him the chance to showcase that he was still the best player in the world.
I thought that was a real, genuine answer because Coach K is always 10 steps ahead.
