There's a kid just a few miles outside of Muncie that has been dunking, in games, since he was a 7th grader. He will be a soph next year. He's not even the best player in his grade at the school, which is a small 2A school. A guard by the name of Grant Evans holds that honor, and is getting looks from Purdue, Butler, Ball State, and quite a bit more.

I played against a kid who could grab rim as a 5th grader. Dumber than dirt, and lacked even the most basic skills, but the kid could/can jump straight out of the gym.

EDIT: Oh, and the grestest thing about the video in the article? That gym is in Ft Wayne. Speice Fieldhouse just off exit 110A on 469N.

The kid in the video reminds Napoleon Dynamite quite a bit. Facial expressions, movement.
Btw, that misdirection pass at 0:40 is amazing.

Go on youtube, you will find amazing videos of a bunch of young guys... They start priming these kids for the NBA at super young ages, 7 yr old kids are already in the system.
