Duke phenom Zion Williamson was offered a football scholarship at LSU

Heat star Dwyane Wade reacts to Zion Williamson’s eerily-similar dunk to LeBron James’

Zion Williamson of Spartanburg Day School attempts a dunk during the 2018 McDonald's All American Game POWERADE Jam Fest at Forbes Arena on March 26, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Barrett finished with 20 points on 8-of-21 shooting and six assists, while Cam Reddish, the third member of the star freshman trio, had a quiet night in just 12 minutes of play, sitting the entire second half with "groin soreness", said Mike Krzyzewski, though he noted he would have played in a close, late-season game, making 1-of-5 field goals for three points.

Duke basketball will be tested at some point this season. Williamson is not just scoring, but at a super-efficient clip.

Wednesday night's game against Eastern Michigan was no exception.

Zion became a household name when the high schooler made OMG-induced waves on YouTube with his dunk highlight reels garnering millions of views and likes.

Barrett and Tre Jones dished out a combined 14 assists to three turnovers. "But more than how high he jumps is his incredible body control". Duke won the bidding war over in state SC and nearby North Carolina.

"I didn't know how high I got until I came to the bench and Alex (O'Connell) and Cam were like, 'Bro, you got up so high, '" Williamson said of the dunk where his eyes were almost even with the rim at his apex.

Barring something unforeseen, National Basketball Association fans are going to get to see Zion Williamson and LeBron James go against each other in the National Basketball Association next season.

The One-and-Done rule will not be around much longer. Even though he's miles ahead of his peers on the skill level, he has a lot of off-the-court aspects of the professional life he has yet to master.

Williamson is 6-foot-7, 285 pounds, which would make him the same size as some of the premier defensive linemen in football.

- Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) November 15, 2018Once Mateos saw the highlights, he got Williamson's phone number and reached out to offer him a scholarship to LSU. Unfortunately, he didn't seem to be too [interested]. "A Julius Peppers-type of freak".

According to an ESPN report, Williamson never returned the recruiting call. "Zion probably brings the same or better athleticism based off what I've seen".
