Tylan Pope 6’7 F Franklington

Of everyone on this list, Pope might be the most powerful dunker. He attacks the rim with ferocity that you don’t see much of in this generation. He is athletic, but isn’t necessarily a high flyer, which makes the dunks that he has over bigger opponents all the more impressive when he throws them down.

Charlie Russel 6’7 SF Sophie B. Wright

Russel is another one on this list that isn’t necessarily a high flyer, but with his arms that last for days he is able to soar through the air. His biggest strength on the court is shooting, so for guys that don’t know his game, they don’t expect him to be looking to throw it down when he’s attacking through the lane.

Hunter Dean 6’9 PF Lakeshore

Of everyone on this list, Dean has the widest array of different dunks that he is able to throw down. I’ve seen him do some pretty impressive stuff in pregame layup lines, including throwing down a nasty windmill with his head at the rim at the Prep Hoops Top 250 Camp last month. He is still getting used to throwing down big dunks against tougher competition, but he is going to do some things this year that no one else in the state is physically capable of.

De’Antray Hughes 6’6 PF Karr

Hughes might be the smallest person on this list, but he also might have the highest vertical. He is a springy jumper, and absolutely gets up with the best of them. He is looking to put someone on a poster every time he drives to the lane, which is pretty often. He has long arms that allow him to get up high above the rim and high above the defense.
