The 6-foot-7, 230-pound forward from Spartanburg, S.C. has become a YouTube sensation this season with his ridiculous dunks and powerful style of play. His highlights have been featured prominently on ESPN SportsCenter, and celebrity-rapper-turned-UK-fan Drake has been photographed wearing his high school jersey.
247Sports ranks Williamson as the No. 1 overall prospect in the recruiting class of 2018. Rivals.com, Scout.com and ESPN all rank him as the No. 2 prospect in the class, behind only Marvin Bagley, another major UK recruiting target.
Because he doesn't play anything like Harrison Barnes....lol. What the hell type stupid question was that?
again idiot.....its not about playing like Harrison barnes......Harrison barnes was one of the best recruits in his hs class if not the best...got to north Carolina and had a lackluster career.....in the pros....he isn't a household name,,,a decent starter....nun more nun less....again....a HARRISON BARNES ceiling.
Huge, athletic, good ball handling skills, zero jumpshot.
I'm not comparing skillset per say but more of trajectory.....barnes was a very hyped hs player....most ranking had him as the best hs player in the nation...got to north Carolina and he was so so....in the pros he is a decent starter...not a allstar, not a superstar, a solid starter.
