Arizona may be without Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson next season, but Sean Miller will blend a strong cast of returnees with another impressive incoming recruiting class.
The headlining star heading to Tuscon this fall is wing Stanley Johnson, ranked No. 3 overall in the Class of 2014 by Rivals.
As he gears up for his collegiate career to begin, he gave glimpses of what highlight Wildcat fans can expect out of him next year, as he went head-to-head with 5-foot-10 street ball dunk legend, Sir Isaac.
Despite the 6-foot-7 Johnson had about nine inches on his competition, the two continued to match one another.
I’m on record saying that I would consider Marquette freshman Henry Ellenson if I had the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and while, at this point, I think that Brandon Ingram is probably going to end up going No. 2 — (Maybe No. 1???) — I still believe that Ellenson is going to be one of the best players from this draft class.
Well, just take a look at these highlights from the 26-point, 16-rebound performance he had in a win over Providence last night.
Then remember that Ellenson is 6-foot-11:
A solid poster dunk went down in the junior college ranks last night as Pensacola State sophomore Jamal Thomas finished a dunk through a block attempt against Northwest Florida State.
The 6-foot-3 Thomas used his power and momentum to go through the opposing shot blocker and the play made his head coach, Pete Pena, go nuts with an over-exaggerated fist pump. The video is short, but be sure to watch for Pena’s reaction near the logo at the top right of the screen.
