Let's talk Zion Williamson, I'm hearing all sorts of stories. Do we have a decent shot with Zion?

    Hard to say at this point. Last night didn't hurt. Know he likes FM but will it be enough ?

    WHAT!!!! No more comments about a player that could really be great for us and help send us to many more sweet sixteens.

    Bring in Zion and bring back Dozier and next year we could be a final four team. Heck, we might be this year! Come home Zion and achieve things never done before here (and get coached by a fantastic coach in Frank Martin)!

    He is a 2018 recruit...This years class is set unless CFM lands that big center from OakHill...I think he is the only other player being recruited for the 2017 class...But something else may come up if there is an opportunity

    David McCormack 6'10"-270 but moves like he is 6'6"...Made a mistake in that he is 2018 not 2017..He is the number 2 overall center in the 2018 class

    Keep in mind, barring injury, Zion is a one-and-done. TOS has 80% percent Duke,fwiw.

    Heard the same thing...But money talks...I wish CFM would cheat...But he wont...But i digress, we just reached the sweet 16 without him or any illegal recruiting...So maybe you don't have to cheat

    That would be really, really nice, however, we have a better chance of making the 2019 college football playoff than:

    a) Dozier staying to play his senior season
    b) Mack transferring here
    c) Willionson coming here
    d) Silva staying to play his senior season
    e) All of the above

    Well FM does not have to cheat himself. We just need a bag man that will do the job for us, especially in football. Now there is a sport where we definitely need to cheat.

    I just googled TMack, I'm not sure he would be good for us unless he really changes his attitude.

    Dude please...there is no integrity in losing..some of you folks act like God wrote the NCAA rules..Those rules were written by a bunch of jack asses that think they can make Furman and Citadel the equal of Bama and Ohio St...Those rules are shear insanity...Any team that loses just to comply is foolish..Be smart about it and break the most inane rules on planet earth

    Something tells me Zion won`t have to worry about money. He seems like a good kid. I`m sure he can wait a year to get paid nicely by an NBA team.

    I hear Wofford is in the mix. Andy Young was the first to offer him. He has gotten real close to the family.Zion has been to more Wofford games than any other School. USA today had big article couple weeks ago about his weekend at Wofford.

    Well-played shameless-plug. But yeah, there is some good Zion info in that thread.
