Prepare to be amazed at the mid-air athleticism of Derrick Jones.
Jones, a soon-to-be graduate of Philadelphia’s Archbishop Carroll, is headed for the bright lights of UNLV. When he gets the ball for the Rebels, there should be little question what he plans to do when he reaches the rack.
The video you see above was taken by Team Flight Brothers and HoopMixtape, with TFB so impressed that they’ve already scheduled another one-on-one dunk session with the senior. In fact, one TFB member called Jones one of the top-10 dunkers he had seen in his entire life, regardless of level.
That’s some praise from a group of guys who literally go around the country searching for people to watch throw down dunks (not a bad life, eh?).
Whether or not Jones can produce this kind of highlight reel result at the next level remains to be seen. It’ll certainly be worth tuning in to find out.
