    Zion Williamson, the 6-foot-6 small forward from Spartanburg (SC) Day School and No. 2 ranked prospect on the 2018 ESPN 100, will announce his college decision on January 20, per his Twitter.

    Williamson is considering Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, Clemson and South Carolina. Kentucky is considered a favorite by some, with Clemson as the dark horse.

    “I honestly feel like I’ll be making a decision soon,” he wrote in his USA Today blog in December. “I’ve been really thinking here lately about the pros and cons and I just feel like the time is coming.

    “I won’t say that I feel pressure, but the fact that I have to actually pick one school is starting to be more real in my mind.

    “I’ve been watching all of the schools recruiting me on TV a lot and I watch the players in my position and how the schools use those guys; just doing my homework on everybody.

    “That said, I’m still enjoying the process and I still have great relationships with all of the coaches.”

    Meantime, Williamson remains out with a bone bruise in his foot but expects to return this month.

    “I have a really deep bruise on my foot and the doctor told me he wants me to rest it until it’s really back to 100 percent,” he wrote. “I’m in a boot right now, but I’ll be back in January though and I can’t wait until then because I miss the game.

    “I wish I could be playing right now, but I know that God has a plan for me and I don’t have to always understand it.“I’ve been out for a few weeks so it’s really been a time to grow mentally.”
