Video: ‘Snap’ Peters – Best Dunker in ’10 Class?

We’ve recently seen DeMar and Deuce and Dwayne display their boosties, but The Best High School Dunker in the past five years might go to 6-2 Brandon “Snap” Peters from the legendary Yates HS:

    Jumpshot? I’d hate to see a kid with this much athleticism get lost in the shuffle.

    In-game between the legs is ‘kinda demoralizing for the opponent, I guess.

    ^ I was wonder where you were going with the W-O-… for a moment, Sanchez.

    Right there with you on the last 5 years comment. I’ve only seen him once in person, but he pulls stuff like that off all the time in games. Heading to Western Kentucky so in an up and down conference like the Sun Belt, this could be an ongoing show for the next few years…

    Peters will be playing for Western Kentucky next season, by the way.

    I watched this dude play all season long covering Yates for the Houston Chronicle. Dude is a BEAST for real! For him to only be 6’1, I’ve seen him so some amazing dunks.

  • LD

    I wish they would stop half showing dunks that he didn’t make.

  • T-Money

    Um, that’s kinda insane and almost illegal. Is he a 1 or a 2? That could make all the difference in the world.

  • e

    i know this the dude better make sure his jumper and his handle is right or he will be like skywalker or something mess around and be a sprite dunker

  • http://twitter.com/soulonice6 Kenny

    The kid has an all-around game. His jumper is straight; needs work, but it’s serviceable. He plays GREAT defense as well, and is a tremendous rebounder. He’s the real deal.

    Good. Lord.

  • http://slamonline.com Rodger Bohn

    @T-Money, he’s a 2 all the way right now. Not saying the dude has mad NBA potential…just saying he has bounce out of this worlddddd!

  • http://slamonline.com Rodger Bohn

    Rewatching it again…can we say a better Helicopter? I have his Oak Hill highlight tape on VHS. Pretty sick, but nothing like this.

  • http://www.yougotdunkedon.com LilKDub503

    What’s crazy is the amount of games/exhibitions it took him to put this together. 1 charity game, a dunk contest at that charity game, 2 games (1 play at a state chip game, the other game), an exhibition at one of those games, and an All-star game. That’s it.

    Dude is freaking bananas.

  • ol ricky rhodes

    @Rodger Bohn – don’t let that highlight tape fool you, Helicopter was the MAN. Plus, not every game was video taped even then, much less charity events. Never saw John go around his back, but he could do the rest of these dunks 1st thing in the morning. I’ve seen him up way higher than this cat. Don’t get me wrong Brandon can fly, but he can’t hover, like a helicopter. John had this dude by 6 inches easily at the same age

  • Dave

    He doesn’t even put the third dunk on the tape down. Who edits this crap?
    Don’t see a handle. A finisher who can’t handle is a Chinese league player.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    0:43 is the most effortless reverse dunk ive ever seen. he was chillin for like 1 second.

  • http://slamonline.com Rodger Bohn

    @ol- I’m got some RIDIC rare stuff of Helicopter. Back when he was simply known as John Humphrey. The quality is terrible, but if you’re familiar with Oak Hill, you know about the highlight tapes that they give their guys at the end of the season. Perhaps I’m not giving him just due because the quality of my tape is nowhere near this.

  • PlanetAsia14

    Damn! Dude can fly! Six seconds in, I don’t care if he made the dunk or missed it. That’s hops right there. Hopefully he gets his all around game continued so we can see him running the show in the NBA.

  • slapalot

    does anyone know where i can get a hold of this beat or what song the sample is from??
    just love the track (and dudes hops…)
    sick sick sick
