Why Zion W. should come to Wofford

Postby drpnut on Fri Sep 22, 2017 11:14 am

We all know everyone in the nation is recruiting Zion. And he most likely is going to sign with ACC/SEC or another Power 5. However, I, along with many of you can think of some good reasons he should sign with the T-dogs.

1) He is a one and done dude, so why not stay at home where he already has the built in community support. And if he is one an done it really doesn't matter much playing at a Power Conference School. Sure one could argue about the big school exposure, environment, etc. But in reality as a one and done guy is that really important?

2) We are playing good teams. Our schedule is not soft, so he will get to play against top-flight competition.

3) He would pack the building every game (He would do that at any school most likely) but he could have more interaction with fans, etc at the JRIA.

4) He would really learn how to play lock down D at Woffy. The NBA is loaded with plenty of dudes who can fill it up scoring. But not that many can fill it up and play lights out D all the time.

5) When he does finish his degree at Woffy, he will a very good degree from a very good school.

6) His family would not have to travel to see him play. And he could eat home cooking all the time.

7) And most of all he could do something unique that is not often done--sign with the little school.

Dreaming I know, but dreaming is good.

Players at his level rarely graduate.
I would love for him to come do for us what Steph Curry did for Davidson, but he is likely going to play one year at Kentucky and move on.

We do have UNC-CHeat coming in next season. That's probably our best chance to see Zion in the JRIS, but hey, a Terrier can dream, right...
