It was dubbed as the future Kentucky University feature game, however the biggest highlight from this weekend’s BallisLife All-American games came from a UNLV commit.
Posting a perfect 50 score for each of his three dunks, UNLV commit Derrick Jones dropped jaws and brought the crowd to their feet during the entire dunk contest.
A slight to his lack of invite to the McDonald’s All-American Game, Jones’ stated he has no doubt he would have won there too. “I don’t lose too many dunk contests. It’s what I do,” Jones said. He’s right. Just a month ago he was putting up perfect scores and blowing away fans at the American Family Insurance contest where he dunked over four people!
