Best High School Dunkers of 2020
6'8" - SF - 2020
Greg Brown, Vandegrift (Austn, Texas): Big men, especially those with extreme amounts of bounce, make for some of the most entertaining dunkers of our generation (see Aaron Gordon). At 6-feet-9 with a long, wiry frame, Brown attacks the rim with a similar ferocity to that of Gordon and Zion Williamson. The five-star senior has been dubbed the most disrespectful dunker of in all of high school hoops and the video below will show you why.
6'5" - SG - 2020
Jalen Green, Prolific Prep (Napa, Calif.): Green has some of easiest and smoothest leaping ability we’ve seen. The 6-foot-5 wing can stop and explode on a dime, and even though it looks effortless, Green explodes to the rim looking to throw down on someone’s head. The five-star senior glides through the air en route to a poster dunk whether he’s operating in transition or the half-court setting.
6'4" - SG - 2020
Josh Christopher, Mayfair (Lakewood, Calif.): Christopher has that rare combination of power, physicality and explosiveness in his dunks. The 6-foot-4 guard used those traits throughout his high school career to create numerous poster dunks as he was able to take contact in the air and still finish at the rim with authority. The five-star prospect has a deep bag of dunks in his arsenal from a double pump reverse dunk to an Eastbay and everything in between. What makes Josh such a good dunker is the fact that he can create a highlight off of one or two feet.
6'8" - SF - 2020
Jonathan Kuminga, The Patrick School (Elizabeth, N.J.): What makes Kuminga such a high-class dunker is the fact that he’s so smooth and explosive at the same time, while adding in a lengthy 6-foot-8 frame. The five-star wing takes off with ease in traffic and seems to always be looking to throw down on someones head. Kuminga isn’t just a power dunker, either. He has some creativity and artistry to his dunks that separates him from some of the other better high school dunkers of 2020.
