Zion Williamson is one of the top prospects in the 2018 recruiting class and committed to the Duke Blue Devils. But before he begins his college career, the high-flying dunker has a chance to put his talents on display one final time as a high school basketball player.
Williamson is currently preparing to participate in the 2018 McDonald’s All-American, but on Monday night he got to shine with what he does best.
The 6-foot-6 Spartanburg Day School standout, currently ranked as the No. 3 overall player in his class, participated in the Powerade Jame Fest to put his dunking skills on full display. As you may have expected, Williamson cruised to victory in the competition.
Despite just missing out on both attempts of his final one-handed 360 dunk, Williamson claimed the crown thanks to some other impressive throwdowns.
Here are some of the highlights from Williamson’s performance:

But despite those impressive dunks, it was his miss that was the best of all.

It’s going to be fun to watch his career continue to develop during his time at Duke.
