During this year’s NBA Draft Combine, Pat Connaughton recorded a ridiculous 44″ max vert jump which was good enough for top 5 all-time at the event. D.J. Stephens owns the combine record with a 46″. The 46″ is slightly better than the 45.76 which is what Michael Jordan reportedly had in college and 4 inches higher than what the Bulls once said MJ had in the NBA.
Anything above 40 is considering skywalking and anything nearing 45 is questionable and in many cases not true. Enter University of Southern California Football commit Josh Imatorbhebhe and proof that he has an absolutely insane 47″ vert.
In this video clip, Josh, without taking a step, just hops straight up in the air like a scared cat and levitates longer than David Blaine ever did.
If you want to see those hops on the basketball court then go to the 20 second mark of this video.
