    *High School Girl Dunks*

    We posted on this girl at the end of last year's high school basketball season, but I just saw this video on youtube.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuDfRzY2Vqw"]YouTube - High School Girl Dunker[/ame]


    She goes to Nimitz High School in Houston. I taught 1st grade at Dunn Elementary right next door and her dad was a police officer at our school. He said the doctors think she will grow to 6'9" or 6'10." She is already 6'8" and dunking with ease. I went and watched a couple games of hers last year when I was still living there and people came from all around and packed the gym hoping to see this girl dunk. She is fairly quick and a good ball handler too. With her size and athletic ability she may be the most highly touted high school girls recruit ever.

    Would be awesome if ISU had a chance to land her...

    Go get em Bill! Didn't some other guy from Houston know her dad and always hound him about how she should go to ISU?

    Yeah, my friend Quincy and I taught at the same school and we would tell him all about how good ISU was and try to sell him on it...but I'm thinking she will probably be able to go anywhere in the country that she wants...

    I think she's going to Baylor.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    She is a verbal to Baylor. May get to see her play once before she goes to the Association!

    This is being discussed in the ISU WBB forum.

    Looks like she's committed to Baylor...

    Re: *High School Girl Dunks*

    I feel sorry for her to be quite honest. First off she is a 6 foot 8 freak show. "people come from all around just to see her". Sounds like a quote from the old freak shows. She is never going to live a normal life. WNBA if it's still around when she get's older does not pay well at all. So basically it's neat to see a few times. Good luck to her.

    She kind of looks like Joakim Noah

    Re: *High School Girl Dunks*

    What amazes me is that she dunks with such ease. Lisa Leslie could "dunk" as well, but she needed a half court run at it and could still barely grab the rim. This girl is running from the 3 point line and can hang on the rim. Pretty impressive.
