While virtually everyone expects Duke freshman sensation Zion Williamson to declare for June's NBA draft, he's not ready to make it official.

"I mean, it's obviously a high chance that I'm obviously going to enter the draft," Williamson said after Duke's season-ending Elite Eight loss to Michigan State on Sunday, according to SNY's Adam Zagoria. "I'm not going to make it official because it's something I have to talk to my parents about."

Williamson is currently the consensus No. 1 pick in the draft if he chooses to declare for the NBA. He put up another monster line Sunday, scoring 24 points with 14 rebounds and three blocks.

The loss ends a media circus-like season for Duke, as Williamson teamed up with fellow top recruit freshmen RJ Barrett, Cam Reddish, and Tre Jones.

"We got seniors and other players that could potentially go pro, so each year, especially coming to Duke, you gotta enjoy being with that group because it changes almost every year," Williamson said.
