Zion Williamson might not be the No. 1 prospect in the United State for the high school graduating class of 2018, but he by far could be the most famous. Well known for his impressive dunks, Williamson is said to be on one of the top 3 players of the graduating class according to most recruiting services. After a long and much anticipated college commitment process, Williamson chose to be part of Duke University’s all-time great recruiting class. A pair of phenomenal players, R.J. Barrett and Cameron Reddish are also committed to becoming Blue Devils as well as 5-star point guard, Tre Jones.
As the top point guard in Chicago, Illinois, Ayo Dosunmi, a 6-4 2018 high school graduate seeks to find the best fit for him when it comes to playing basketball and college. Wake Forest University proceeds to do whatever they can to gain this incredible athlete on their team. While he holds offers from widely known Division I basketball programs, the 4-star recruit, 28th best prospect in the country, and the 3rd best shooting guard, has a tough decision to make. His 51 point outing against one of the best teams in the state of Illinois proves him to be a great asset to any team.
While being the son of late NBA star Manute Bol, the 7 foot, power forward/center, and 2018 graduate, Bol Bol is the newest name on the basketball offer list for the University of Kentucky. Ranked 5th overall on most major recruiting services, he is expected to climb up the charts as far as he can go. Romeo Langford, the No. 1 shooting guard, and ranked overall No. 3 player by major recruiting agencies, stands behind two other insanely talented players: Marvin Bailey and Zion Williamson. Kentucky knows it will be a huge get to pull him across the river and down to Lexington, but they are willing to do what it takes to build their team.
The Class of 2018 has talent like none other on and off the court. With many offers riding on the table for each athlete, and some already committed to a university, the push is around the corner to sign the players Duke, Wake Forest, and Kentucky need to build the team they expect to have in the 2018-2019 basketball season.
