    If what I've heard of our SC coach is true, get this kid in. Lose a little body fat, gain some muscle, and he's a beast athletically.

    What the hell? That guy is only 1 inch taller than I am, but weighs 100 pounds more and he can dunk? That's just not fair.

    Suck it people. I honestly haven't even tried to dunk since middle school when I played bball (I sucked), I suppose if I worked on it I could do it. I was just projecting an additional 100 pounds to my ass, there's no way I'd even touch the rim.

    :lol: I do have pretty long lanky arms. I'm just saying, I'm not completely unathletic, I was just impressed that a guy that was only 1 inch taller than me and weighed 100 pounds more could dunk. That's some athleticism.

    What kind of height can people normally dunk? 6'1? And lets try to not use NBA examples, those guys have like 45" vertical jumps.

    I am 6'3" and haven't been able to dunk since I was 18, even then it was marginal. Of course weighing 270+ and having bad knees and a blown out ankle didn't help but no just because a guy is over 6' doesn't mean he should be able to dunk easily.

    By the way, just as a reference, when Chauncey was with the Nuggets the rest of the team joked around a lot with him because he had to really work at it to dunk in practice and rarely if ever did it in a game.

    On the other hand a couple of years ago there was a guy at the Olympic Training Center in the springs that was under 5'7" and weighed close to 280 who could dunk, guy was a power lifter and had explosive legs.

    this isn't the same guy but same idea.

    Im only 5'11" or 6' and could dunk pretty easy. Biggest problem I had was not losing the ball cause I dont have big hands. Id say 6'1" is a pretty good number for what ur asking.

    I'm 6'1" and can't come within a foot of the rim. Yet another reason to hate basketball.

    I can touch the rim with just one hand, can't do a 2 hand jam. But am sure with a lot of squats lifting that can be achieved.

    Holding out for an Alabama offer. If it happens, he's theirs. Visiting Kansas and setting up his CU visit.

    "I have also been to Colorado many times because my brother actually graduated from there in May. Colorado is a great place. My brother loved everything about it when he went to school there and that is definitely a big plus. I love the academics that they offer and I talk to their offensive line coach, Coach [Steve] Marshall, and the coaches there seem to be awesome."

    Lots more good info and quotes in the Rivals article.

    Supposedly they're not taking any more interior lineman this cycle but they've asked him to wait just in case.

    Not a smart move to wait for an Alabama offer considering the fact that they wait until signing day to tell you you're gray shirting or you're not coming to Alabama and then cut you the next fall to make room for kids they want from the next recruiting cycle.

    I'm not sure what to make of this guy. Seems like he has a good punch. More of a pass blocker/finesse player in my minds, regardless of the pancakes which are listed Stands too upright at times. I think he has some potential but not in love with him.

    Please cite your source. It is not easy to track down 17-18 year old young men for recruiting updates.
