It looks like a special weekend in Lexington will not include Zion Williamson.
According to KSR’s Matt Jones, Williamson was unable to make his official visit this weekend due to a family situation.
Hearing Zion Williamson was unable to make his UK visit this weekend due to a family situation. Will be rescheduling another trip to Lex— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) September 23, 2017
Because some UK fans are pessimistic, I am told to read zero into the Williamson cancellation...it has zero to do with BB or his decision— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) September 23, 2017
If Williamson doesn’t make the trip to Lexington, he’ll have missed John Wall — one of his idols — being inducted into the UK Athletics Hall of Fame. That was a big reason why Williamson was set to visit this weekend, so seeing him not make the trip is a tough pill to swallow.
Regardless, family is far more important that sports, so hopefully, everything is fine with Williamson and his family. Assuming he does reschedule his visit, UK may now try to get him in for Big Blue Madness, though he may go ahead and visit on a weekend before then.
