If you haven't heard the name Zion Williamson yet, you will. The 6'6 230 pound high school junior has been dominating his peers for the last two years. His athletic ability is through the roof and he still has another year of high school left. He is already being compared to NBA superstar LeBron James because of his size and the skill set he brings to the table. It's just a matter of time before you see him on a major college campus doing damage before bolting for the riches of the NBA.

Zion already has fans all over the country

The Zion Williamson show is becoming more and more popular with each and every game. Every time he plays the stadiums are sold out and it's almost standing room only. Fans line up in droves after the games to see if they can get a close glimpse of perhaps what could possibly be basketball's next "big thing." The crazy thing about all the hoopla is that it kind of happened overnight.

Zion was a 6'3 point guard his freshman year and that following summer he had a 3 inch growth spurt that came with elite athleticism. He immediately began turning heads all over social media with the insane dunks he would do in games. It was almost like watching a dunk contest but it was five on five basketball. Since he started out as a point guard, he still had the same quickness and agility to go along with good ball handling skills.

Add that to his NBA-ready body and you have a star in the making.

Rapper Drake even posted an instagram photo of himself recently wearing a Spartanburg Day Zion Williamson jersey. If someone as famous as that is already taking notice then you must be doing something right. "Zionmania" is definitely taking the country by storm and the best thing to do is just enjoy the ride and see what he does next.

One and done?

Zion Williamson is just a Junior and already analysts are predicting that he is probably going to college for a year and then heading straight to the pros. He is being recruited by all the major college programs in the country, and rightfully so. This year he averaged 36 points 13 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, and 2.5 blocks per game and led his team to a second consecutive state championship victory by scoring a whopping 51 points.

The final score in that game was 76-51 (and yes, Williamson scored the same amount of points as the other team). That's how dominant the kid is and he's still only the #2 ranked player in the class of 2018 behind fellow phenom Marvin Bagley III. It should definitely not be a surprise to see Williamson plying his trade in the NBA in the next 3 or 4 years depending on how long he stays in college.
