Slamadaday: Meyers Leonard on Matt Moran

Aggrey Sam introduced you to incoming Illini Meyers Leonard of Robinson (IL) High in Ish 133. Time to get re-acquainted with this super-athletic 7-footer (click here for another angle):

    damn, that was nasty for real. he cleared old boy with mad space. granted, the dude he jumped over was a midget, but still. that was impressive.

    wow, it’s impressive cuz 7 footers just don’t jump that high. He’s one with hops!

  • T-Money

    Wow, he’s so coordinated. From the video, I would have guessed that he’s 6’7-6’8 swingman. I know nothing about this kid but he’s going pro for sure. You just don’t get that many 7-footers that can move that well.

    what the hell kinda charge was dude trying to take?

  • therighttoremainsalient

    the kind of charge you take on a 5’4 guy that dribbles with his head down…. certainly not the kind of charge you should think of taking on a 6’10 guy who’s second step is about 2.4 meters long and reached over 11 feet to then have to bring the ball DOWN to dunk it….

  • therighttoremainsalient

    The thing I don’t get…why does that team in white have TEN BENCH PLAYERS…. TEN?… SO many scrubs not getting burn right now.

  • therighttoremainsalient

    I guarantee this is the first and last time we hear of a player named Matt Moran…

  • Rob

    Wow, great coordination I agree with T-money, he moves like a 6’8 guy. If he develops it’s gonna be hard for NBA’s centers to keep up with him. He looks fast running down the floor

    D.J. Richardson, Brandon Paul, Jereme Richmond (who I’m STILL waiting for Slam to do an article on) and Meyers Leonard – Illinois is gonna be FUN to watch next year!

    Wow! We got a white Shawn Kemp (minus the snarl). Dude has ballhandling too. First waiting for a guard and when none is available, take it all the way himself. Go young fella!

    Everyone else on the court looks like a midget compared to that guy. Impressive!

    Kids these days trying to do the jumpman logo every chance they get.
    Nice shoes though.

  • Stillballin

    Whiteman can jump.

    Straight ridic. The B.J. Mullens comparisons have some justification based on the athleticism, although his skill set is not quite where the OKC rookie’s was during his HS days.

  • steve

    Meyers is 7′ when this dunk occurred, not 6’10″. Makes it all the more impressive. Of course a couple
    of years ago he was 6’4 and a guard, a good dribbler.
