    I don't know man. I was feeling really hopeful against my better judgement. At this point, I blame myself for buying into the blind optimism of others. In retrospect, it was pretty damn stupid for me to have entertained the thought that we were going to sign the #2 basketball prospect in the country against the likes of UNC, Duke, Kentucky, and Kansas. It really sounds dumb as fuck when I say it out loud.

    Aren't you the guy who said it was first Kansas, then Duke?

    You don't have a clue what's going on here and just keep making shit up.

    There is and has been very legit interest from Zion and his camp. There are things in motion to get him to Clemson. As I have said for a while now, patience is key in his recruitment.

    Him signing early was always 50/50 at best. His own words were December for a commitment. Also, he isn't going far from home so not Kentucky or Kansas.

    On one hand, and heavily my favorite outcome, we get Zion and brownell delays the inevitable.

    On the other hand we don’t get Zion and do get a new basketball coach.

    While I do love a coaching search, like you I highly prefer to sign Zion. I also believe that in basketball, signing the first guy like Zion can lead to other talented players to find favor with Clemson. Maybe not top 10 guys, but 50-100 guys who could build this program.

    But of not, we get to have a coaching search, and that is always fun filled with hope!

    What's this mean to you? Think he wants to hold out and see what Clemson does? Why the change?

    SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
    Zion Williamson will not be signing with a college team during the early signing period, which ends, Wednesday according to his father.

    The 6’6” tall high school basketball phenom from Spartanburg Day School has made official visits to Kentucky, Kansas, Duke and North Carolina and unofficial visits to South Carolina and Clemson.

    Williamson is now expected to sign in April 2018 when the regular signing period opens for prospective college athletes.

    If you believe Zion was/is favoring Clemson, then delaying is bad.
    If you believe Zion was/is favoring anyone else, then delaying is good.
    Same as any other recruitment.

    So apparently Spartanburg Day is playing against my mom's school in early January and she just texted me saying she got tickets, so that should be fun. Will be cool to see him and D.J. Burns on the court at the same time

    Thomas has looked more aggressive down low so far. That's a big boost for us

    Way too many turnovers. Think we're on pace for around 28 for the game

    Like what I'm seeing from Thomas early in the second half.

    Also, trying to figure out if Grantham has grown up or if it's just Ohio

    The two games I have seen he has made a point to drive and be somewhat big. I have liked what I have seen from him so far.

    It's feels like Grantham is a different player to start the season. Hopefully it will continue. He can be a big weapon for us.

    I know there's a lot of tall about the health of Mitchell, but it has to be a positive that he isn't showing signs of it.
