Zion Williamson is a wanted man. That tends to be the case when you’re one of the top prospects in your class and have a highlight reel that would make Dominique Wilkins jealous.
It seems like more than a few South Carolina fans had heard that Williamson was in the building. And the Gamecock faithful let him know how badly they want him to stay home and go to South Carolina.
Madison Square Garden was serenaded with “We Want Zion” chants.

Given that Missouri landed a commitment from Michael Porter Jr. on Friday, Porter Jr. is the No. 1 overall prospect for the class of 2017, maybe it isn’t so far fetched for Williamson to end up picking the Gamecocks. Missouri was the worst team in the SEC and Porter Jr. grew up in Missouri.
So imagine what Williamson could bring to a program like South Carolina, which has proven it can win at the highest levels in college basketball. Williamson is the No. 2 prospect in the 2018 class.
