Here’s a few links around the country with updates on big-time recruits:

The legend of Zion:
“The 16-year-old is drawing comparisons to LeBron James, for his dunking ability and for the crowds he is drawing to his games. Williamson has stayed as long as an hour and a half after games, posing for pictures and signing autographs.”

Zion Williamson has taken the internet by storm this high school season, with his highlight plays going viral nearly every week. The haters might say he plays no competition but those are the same people who fail to do the research about Williamson. According to ESPN, he is a five-star recruit, and the no. 2 player in the class of 2018.

Trevon Duvals makes his official visit to Arizona:
“[Duval’s] a key component of any school’s future offense and has the ability to learn Sean Miller’s defense. Hopefully a fun visit to the McKale Center and a season sweep of the Bruins could sway his choice towards becoming a Wildcat.”

Trevon Duval, the star of a loaded IMG Academy team, spent his Saturday in Tuscon, watching an incredible game between UCLA and Arizona. While the Wildcats dropped a close one, hard to imagine Duval didn’t enjoy his visit with College Gameday hosting the game, and Bill Walton on the call taking his shirt off. A wild Saturday at the McKale Center, but will it be enough for Coach Sean Miller to land Duval, the no. 1 point guard in the class of 2017?

Mater Dei turns back Chino Hills in overtime:
“The NBA game between the Clippers and Spurs down the street at Staples Center deserved second billing on a night when the Southern Section Open Division semifinals brought together four of the nation’s top teams. Chino Hills, in particular, has attracted a following that keeps selling out gyms no matter the size and no matter the location.”

Chino Hills and the Ball brothers, the nation’s most controversial squad, lost in the California Open Division semifinals to a recently re-loaded Mater Dei team. Mater Dei, who had lost by nearly 50 a year ago to Chino Hills, now has 7-1 center, Bol Bol, protecting the paint for them. In a game where the Huskies only shot 30% from the field, you have to believe the shot-blocking Bol had something to do with that. LaMelo and LiAngelo’s season isn’t done yet, as they still have the state playoffs.
