Twitter reacts to Zion Williamson's surprising commitment to Duke

Spartanburg Day's Zion Williamson #12 drives to the hoop against Chino Hills during a high school basketball game at the Hoophall Classic, Saturday, January 13, 2018, in Springfield, MA. Williamson also was considering USC, North Carolina, Kentucky and Kansas.

Williamson has a 7-foot wingspan, which isn't anything special for an NBA-level power forward, but makes up for it with his verticality to be an effective shot blocker at the high school level.

Here's part of ESPN.com scouting report on Williamson: "Williamson plays with more sheer force than we've seen in high school basketball in quite a long time as the southpaw's combination of raw power and explosive athleticism is nearly unprecedented".

Regardless, Williamson is regarded as a can't miss prospect who is expected to only play one year in college. If he does only play one year in college, he will enter the National Basketball Association draft in the summer of 2019 when he is still 18.
