I'm not huge into recruiting. I follow it, and I'll write about it when someone makes a decision on a school, but I am not one of those folks that gets excited about a 15 year old cutting his list to seven schools.
That said, I have a ton of respect for the guys on the recruiting beat. Its why I follow them on twitter. They work hard and are a fountain of information when it comes to the skills that an incoming freshmen possesses.
Last night around midnight, tweets like these, the first two from Eric Bossi and the third from Evan Daniels, started to pop up on my timeline:
Going to be damn near impossible to top what LB Nash just did to a dude for dunk of the year. Plus one!!!! #thanksgivinghoopfest.
"I was about to windmill it and he got in my way so he had to pay the price." LB Nash on his big dunk.
LEBRYAN NASH! WOW. Just jumped over a dude for a one handed slam. WOW!!!!!!!Makes you want to see video, right? Here:
And off course, since it is a big high school event, you know there are going to be plenty of cameras in place. That wasn't even the best view:
I blame youtube and the proliferation of dunks like that for single handedly ruining our nation's ability to play help side defense. After watching that video, would you try to draw a charge on LeBryan Nash?
Was this as good as the rest of the dunks for 2010-2011?
