Zion Williamson thriving in front of John Calipari at Adidas Gauntlet Finale

Coach Cal started his morning watching Williamson, and the young 5-star recruit did not disappoint.

While there is a ton of talent at Peach Jam this week, John Calipari decided to spend his time watching recruits down at the Adidas Gauntlet Finale in Spartanburg, SC. The feature attraction this morning was Spartanburg native Zion Williamson.

In the opening round of competition, Williamson led his SC Supreme squad over Team Knight 72-66. He had 31 points, 9 rebounds, and 2 blocks and put on quite a show for those in attendance.

First, a dunk exhibition...

Then some ridiculous defense...

Williamson is a top target for many programs. Although he is already a very skilled player, his athleticism gives him a higher ceiling than most other recruits. South Carolina, Clemson, UCLA, Duke, UNC, and Kansas are also on hand to get some face time with the phenom.

Williamson will take the court again at 6:00 p.m. as his team takes on Game Elite 2019. Check back at the Adidas Gauntlet website closer to game time for a live feed.
