Apparently, Zion didn't make it to Clemson, either.

So in the past week or so, he’s blown off USC and Clemson but attended a game at Wofford.

Would be hilarious if he went there. And, why not? He doesn’t need anything in particular from any college program. So just say home, literally.

Agreed. Go to Wofford kid. He would own that school.

The only advice I would give the kid if I were in a position to do so would be this: go somewhere you can be a difference-maker. The blue bloods are loaded with talent. He can go to one of them and be part of an extremely talented team, but he won’t be a difference-maker. If he’s not tbere, they’ll just have another top 10 recruit to fill that spot.

A second word of advice would be to go somewhere you’ll be remembered once you’re gone. The blue bloods collect one-and-dones like baseball cards. I’ve got so many baseball cards from my childhood socked away in the basement and they haven’t seen the light of day in years. Wouldn’t know if someone stole 1,000 of them. Go to UK or UNC and the second you’re gone, you’re forgotten as attention turns to the next batch of one-and-dones. Go to Clemson, USC or Wofford and you’ll be a hero for life at that program.

I’m surprised more one-and-dones don’t adopt this philosophy. With how things are now, you don’t need to go to a top program to get exposure or get drafted. If it were me, I’d go somewhere I’d truly be appreciated and could make a difference.

But they don't get all that shoe money at Clemson, USC or Wofford.

He won't change much in one year at Moo U, and I think he is only going there due to family pressure. Kids should never be put in that position.

Clemson will go from being a mediocre program to a mediocre program with one really talented player, then right back to being a mediocre program. If he came here, he could be the go-to guy on a deep and talented team that could make noise in the tournament.

Why do you guys think he is not coming to USC? I've seen a lot of posts just saying that he's not coming to South Carolina. Why not us? Why Clemson?

Yeah, it could be a Ben Simmons scenario all over again. LSU didn't even make the tournament with him.
