Clemson coach, Dabo Swinney, said he would place Duke basketball superstar, Zion Williamson, at QB


Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has added a number of new recruits this year, including receiver Justyn Ross and quarterback Trevor Lawrence en route to the national championship. But he thinks another freshman could have exploded on the college football scene at several posts – basketball star Duke Zion Williamson.

Swinney was invited to the radio show "Basketball & Beyond" from Duke coach Mike SiriusXM College on Thursday night, and gave a glimpse of the footballer's potential compared to Ross's production. by 6 feet 7 inches.

"The only guy who, in my opinion, could be better than [Ross] is that Zion kid that you have, "said Swinney. I'll put [Williamson] with a tight end or wide or end or where he wanted to play. We could even put it on the watch. Put it in the wild cat. No doubt, no doubt. "

Of course, Williamson must now focus on his own sport. He has an average of 22 points and 9.3 rebounds per game for the Blue Devils, ranked second. It is part of a class of stellar freshmen that includes R.J. Barrett, Cam Reddish and Tre Jones. Williamson also ignored Clemson (with just about every other school in the country) when he chose to attend Duke last year.

With a Final Four in sight and the NBA calling earlier than expected, Williamson's potential career in football will likely be suspended. Unless, of course, that he does become the next multisport star like Kyler Murray.
