Zion Williamson is an athletic freak. Since the time he was 16 years old, the standout forward was an internet sensation thanks to his high-flying dunks and ability to dominate opponents. During his high school career, we would consistently see Williamson clowning opponents and throwing down some of the most impressive in-game dunks you will ever see. Now that he has committed to play for the Duke Blue Devils, we shouldn’t expect any of that to change.
In fact, during a recent shootaround, Williamson flashed his insane leaping ability while playing around with teammate R.J. Barrett.
The two players attempted to throw down dunks from the free throw line. Barrett went first and was just a foot over the line for his jam. Then, Williamson came sprinting into the lane and left his feet at the line before staying airborne all the way to the rim as his teammates erupted.
Check out Williamson’s incredible dunk.

The five-star prospect was rated as the No. 1 power forward in the nation and the top player in the state of South Carolina. Williamson, who helped lead Spartanburg Day School to the South Carolina Independent School Association Class 2A state championship, is known as an insanely athletic power forward who emerged as an internet sensation thanks to his ability to elevate and throw down viral in-game dunks. Williamson committed to the Duke Blue Devils over the Clemson Tigers, Kansas Jayhawks, Kentucky Wildcats, and North Carolina Tar Heels.
Now standing 6-foot-7, 285-pounds with an insane 45-inch vertical leap, Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke Blue Devils have a budding star in Durham.
