Zion Williamson can dunk. We have known this for several years, as Williamson first went viral as a dunking sensation early in his high school career.
Williamson will get to show off his freakish athleticism at Duke next season. He's regarded as a one-and-done prospect, but he should drop plenty of highlights in his lone season in Durham.
In fact, he's not even waiting for the season to showcase his talents. Williamson is with the Blue Devils in Canada right now for a three-game exhibition trip.
During a workout today, he dunked from the free-throw line. Legitimately.
Yesterday, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski told the media that Williamson set a Duke record in the vertical leap, despite the fact he is 6-foot-6, 280-pounds.
That is basically an NFL defensive end jumping 45 inches. Williamson isn't human.
This coming season, Williamson will play a lot as a small-ball '4' for the Blue Devils. He will get plenty of opportunities to use his leaping ability and strength, and is like for a big season as long as he stays in shape and can shoot well enough from the perimeter to keep defenses honest.
Williamson and his Duke teammates will take on Ryerson University tomorrow at 7 p.m. ET in Toronto. Fans can watch the game on ESPN+.
