Young fans discover God after Zion Williamson’s 360 windmill dunk

Tanya Payne

The Nation’s No. 2 recruit in the class of 2018, Zion Williamson is clearly a man amongst boys. Mostly garnering attention for his unusually athletic dunks, he’s taken his dunking resume to a whole new level, pulling off a windmill 360 dunk during a game.

Zion Williamson is a junior at Spartanburg (S.C.) Day, and is en route to becoming a dunk legend at just the young age of 16. Williamson’s latest gravity defying dunk came a few days ago in front of hometown fans, watch:

The crowd’s reaction might be better than the dunk. Those kids look like they’ve just seen the sun explode:

If it feels like Zion came out of nowhere – to a capacity, he did. Though, if you let him tell it this was always the plan. In a tweet he posted last year he declares he’s going to shock the world, and he’s making good on that promise one dunk at a time:

As impressive as the windmill 360 dunk was, this compilation will solidify he’s worthy of all the hype that’s surrounding him:

There’s no word on what school he’ll eventually commit to. But let’s just say he’s definitely enjoying the recruitment process:

Zion’s future is as high as the hops he displays on the basketball court on a nightly basis. One thing for sure is high school athletics just aren’t what they used to be. Players are getting taller, jumping higher and scoring easier. Proving that they’re not only ready for the next level, they’re ready to dominate at the next level.
