adidas Gaunlet Finale Recap: Weatherspoon, Williamson

2017 PG Nick Weatherspoon was electric with his pull-up J, was an elite finisher in transition, and put the clamps on defensively. Ranked around #75 in the nation by most, Weatherspoon is vastly underrated and should be in the mix for a McDonald’s All-American selection.
