Video: DeQuan Jones’ Ridiculous Cram

…and Block!

Trust us, you already know DeQuan Jones. You just may need a quick refresher. He was that kid selling jaw insurance to the nation’s No. 1 2009 recruit, John Wall, last season in an close overtime game. The video, which drew more than 63,000 views in the past year, left people wondering where the next ‘Quan Jones YouTube highlight would be.

Wonder no longer.

Ranked as the nation’s 23rd-best recruit in the 2008 signing class and a consensus top-5 small forward, DeQuan may have had his coming out party Saturday night against the Tarheels.

The 18-year-old Jones easily delivered one of the sickest dunks of the season (wait for 0:30, but watch the entire video), conjuring flashbacks of Jason Richardson in the green and white. JRich and the 6-6, 220-pound freshman from Marietta, Ga. make a solid comparison—except Jones brings a lock-down defensive game and has yet to develop a solid shot from 3-point range.

Jones had a slow start to the season, but, with consistent minutes, consistent highlights will come.

Look out for this five-star recruit and Georgia 2008 Class 5A Player of the Year. Jones is ready to launch.

    Dude. I was watching this game with some non-basketball-savvy friends over the weekend and about fell off the couch. The people I was with didn’t really get it, but… this was nuts. Kobe did something similar at the Garden about 5 years ago, and this was every bit as nasty. And he’s a FRESHMAN. Yikes.

    yeah yeah…. no three point shot though…can he shoot at all? he’ll need to be able to shoot to play the 2/3 as a star in the nba.

    also reminded me of some Kobe dunks. Especially the ones he had against latrell sprewell and doug christie.

    I should mention my bias here: DeQuan is my son.

    Speaking of Miami, what happened to Guillermo Diaz?

    Ryan: …would that make LeBron his God Father?

    NO, Lebron is his “other daddy”, and since im guessing Ryne posted this, Jared Bayless made a 3 last night.

    the link on the top bar is misleading “Jones Terrorizes UNC”. I thought Ryan was walking around shooting fire out of his v@gina and destroying Chapel Hill, agian.
