Zion Williamson was offered an LSU football scholarship

Highly-touted Duke freshman Zion Williamson has lived up to all of the hype and then some in his first three games as a Blue Devil. Reddish had that off night against Eastern Michigan, where he scored just three points after draining seven threes against Army.

Duke's Zion Williamson (1) reacts following a play against Eastern Michigan during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Durham, N.C., Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018.

"Zion's dunks are insane", fellow Blue Devils freshman Tre Jones said.

On a fast break with 10:29 to play in the first half, Cam Reddish threw an alley-oop to the rim. "RJ had some dunks, Javin [DeLaurier] got his first dunk of the year. we have a lot of guys who dunked tonight".

Krzyzewski was asked afterward if he has to pinch himself to believe what he's seeing from his star freshman.

"At my age, when I pinch myself, nothing happens", he joked.


Williamson is the ideal example of why the National Basketball Association rule prohibiting high school players from entering the National Basketball Association.

"More than how high he jumps", Krzyzewski said, "is his incredible body control".

One in particular - perhaps Williamson's signature dunk, at least so far - stood out. Two dribbles, a pass up court, a lob, and in a matter of seconds, the Blue Devils have scored and put momentum on their side. But it certainly feels bigger than all that. That set the tone for the rest of the game as Duke coasted to their third win of the season.

Williamson is averaging 25.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game for the No. 1 Blue Devils this season, so it's fair to say that, while seeing him play football would be pretty intriguing, he clearly made the right decision to stick with hoops.

In the locker room after Wednesday night's game, he broke into a hearty laugh when teammate Joey Baker pulled out his cellphone to show a photo proving that Williamson did, in fact, soar to eye-level with the rim. At 6-foot-7 and 285 pounds with a jaw-dropping vertical, Williamson is unlike any athlete we've ever seen in the world of college basketball - and he's providing brilliant photo ops for photographers almost every minute he's on the floor. The first half, we played so hard. "They were playing zone and we were able to finish".
