    Here’s a look ahead to this weekend’s recruiting visits:

    **Kansas hosts 2018 recruits Zion Williamson, and recent commit David McCormack for “Late Night in the Phog” this weekend (Sept. 30). They will also host 2019’s Malik HallN’faly Dante, Zach Harvey, Samuell Williamson, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, and James Wiseman, per sources.

    **Villanova hosts the 2019 duo of Bryan Antoine and Scottie Lewis for their unofficial visits. Antoine and Lewis spoke with ZAGSBLOG earlier this year about the possibility of a package deal.

    **Rutgers hosts a trio of 2018 commits in Mac McClung, Ron Harper Jr., and Montez Mathis for their official visits during Midnight Madness (Sept. 29). Mamadou Doucoure, who will not be visiting this weekend, helps make up the Scarlett Knights 2018 class, which is ranked by Scout as the No. 20 recruiting class in 2018.

    **Anthony Nelson, the 6-foot-4, 175-pound Class of 2018 point guard from the NY Lightning and South Kent (CT), will visit Seton Hall this weekend after tripping to Dayton last weekend. He hits Clemson next weekend.

    TARRYTOWN, N.Y. — Ramon Sessions isn’t sure if he’ll be the starting Knicks point guard on opening night, but he’s thrilled just to be in New York and to have the opportunity.

    “It’s a dream come true,” the 31-year-old South Carolina native said Wednesday during training camp. “Growing up in the ’90s, just seeing the Garden and how it was, watching moves as a kid like ‘Eddie’ with Whoopi Goldberg, to actually be in this arena, to be on the homestand is a great feeling. It’s a dream come true.”

    Sessions, who averaged 6.2 points and 2.6 assists in 50 games last season in Charlotte, signed a one-year, $2.33 million contract with the Knicks in July after missing time last year because of surgery to repair a torn left lateral meniscus.

    Now he appears to be the odds-on favorite to start at point guard ahead of fellow veteran Jarrett Jack, second-year guard Ron Baker and rookie Frank Ntilikina.
