Duke hits jackpot - gets Zion Williamson

Zion Williamson just announced he's signed with Duke giving them the top three ranked players plus Tyus Jones little brother. Could this be the best recruiting class ever, maybe rivalling the Fab Five. Looks like Calipari and Kentucky are now behind Coach K in terms of recruiting one and dones. Interesting how Coach K tended to avoid them until Calipari started winning. Looks like superteams are no longer for NBA, no salary caps or free agency rules to stop anyone in college.

As a Duke fan this is great!! But not for college basketball as they'll all leave after one season.

Let's face it they only go to college because they can't join NBA .
One and done has nothing to do with education just ask Ben Simmons.

If I were Zion I'd be heading overseas for a nice little cash bump rather than wasting a year pretending to be a student athlete, with restrictions on how much I can train.

Yeah because he's going to be so short of cash when he gets drafted top 10. A few bucks playing in some shithole in Europe with all the expectations put on you as an import pro would be a much better experience for a kid out of high school than playing in one of the best College programs with one of the all time greats coaching you and pretty much a guaranteed trip to the NCAA Tournament and further with the roster they're putting together.........not.

Unless he blows out a knee, anyway. Don't get me wrong, I love college hoops, I just think that it's a complete waste of time for blue chip prospects like Zion.

Zion Is a little Overhyped.
He's an explosive dunker who has below par dribbling and shooting skills.

Ahh to be honest he will be getting a nice chunk of change from Duke. All top 25 kids get paid.

Anthony Bennett 2.0 if he doesnt get in shape. Looks undersized and pudgy.

Unfortunately Jack keeps getting bumped for these one and done guys. He is the one guarding them at practice etc but obviously not getting the chance to play minutes in any games.
