The nation's top uncommitted prospect, Zion Williamson, will end his long and winding recruitment process on Saturday. The five-star forward from Spartanburg Day School in South Carolina, ranked as the No. 3 overall player in the Class of 2018, will pick his college destination between Clemson, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina. So what school will it be for Mr. Highlight Reel himself? The in-state Clemson Tigers lead the way in the 247Sports Crystal Ball as the clock ticks closer to midnight. But he's remained firm in the fact that he is still undecided, and genuinely torn, between his finalists on the decision. One small detail to keep in mind that may, or may not, alter his final decision: at 6-foot-6, Williamson played most of his high school career as a dominant, over-powering power forward. But in college, it's unclear if he'll move to the wing, evolve into a hybrid stretch-four of sorts, or continue to play down low and use his elite physical tools and strength in the post. Williamson is a can't-miss prospect, so finding the right (or wrong) fit won't hamstring him completely. But finding the right situation has been a hot button topic for him more so than many five-stars, simply because the position he's played in high school might not be the one he plays full time in college. So with that in mind, what might his commitment mean for each of his six finalists? Let's take a deep dive based off current and projected rosters, determine where he might find the best fit and what impact he might have as a potential one-and-done.
