Zion was unable to make his official visit to Lexington.

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.

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.
