UNLV Commit Derrick Jones Turns Heads at Dunk Contest in Florida (VIDEO)

by December 22, 2014

Already known as one of the most exciting finishers in the prep scene, Derrick Jones — a Philadelphia native who has committed to attend UNLV next year — lived up to the billing during the weekend at the City of Palms Classic in Florida. The highflying 6-6 small forward had the crowd buzzing during the showcase’s dunk contest with his acrobatic finishes. Not only was he hammering them down during the dunk contest. During Day 2 of the tournament in a game against a team from California, Jones sent a defender to the ground after a two-hand jam over him. As insane as his hops are, what’s more insane is that he’s still only a high school kid.
