High schooler’s dunk puts him on map, opponent on poster
Get ready to hear the name Seventh Woods – a lot.
The high school sophomore from Columbia, S.C., is considered one of the best players in the Class of 2016 and is about to become a household name after arguably the best dunk of the basketball season so far – at any level – on Friday night.

On a fast break, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound guard absolutely posterized a poor soul trying to draw a charge and skied so high he nearly hit his head on the rim. The dunk was so epic it has over 280,000 view on YouTube as of 10:30 a.m. ET Saturday and was named SportsCenter’s top play over LeBron James’ posterization of Ben McLemore.
The scariest part? Woods is only 15 and can’t even drive a car yet.
Does Woods remind you of anyone? We found someone with similar size and athletic ability.
Note to Woods’ future high school opponents: When he goes up for a dunk, duck.
