Has anyone seen this kids dunk video on Youtube? It looks like he can jump out of the gym. He is trying to get invited to the dunk contest at the D1 Final Four. Anyone have info on him? Video is really impressive, 50" vertical !!!!!!!!

Wow. Extremely impressive.

If you google "2011 ncaa dunk contest" Tucker is all over it. When will the bids go out for it? Would love for a D3 kid to get that kind of love on national TV. And he is an excellent dunker.

 This video, made a few years ago, was posted on the CCIW board last season.  Or maybe the season before.

He needs to be in the dunk contest.  The whole underdog story is too good to pass up.

Starting March 17, Tucker will be in an internet vote to get into the contest. It's him vs. a player from an NAIA school.  VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
