Hey Mr. D.J. won't you put a jersey on...

I want to start off by apologizing for the title and quickly move on to tell you about D.J. Stephens. Stephens is a 6'5 170lb SG from Harker Heights High School, located about an hour north of Austin, TX. He has dominated there as well as on his AAU team, Texas DI Ambassadors. Around Killeen, TX he is known as "Harker Heights Highlight Reel." Which is easy to believe after you read what his coach, Max Ivany, had to say about him, "Truly one of the nices kids I've ever had the opportunity to coach, he is one of the top dunkers in the country. Listen carefully folks, this is not "puffery". With a vert that is over 40", he's also one of the quickest leapers I've ever seen to boot. D.J.'s good for one unbelievable dunk per game."
(looks like a nice kid...who can dunk)
Many schools have reportedly been looking at Stephens; Western Kentucky, San Francisco, San Diego and Tulsa. But when the Tigers offered him a scholarship he happily accepted and Memphis rejoiced. Maybe because there has been some comparison of D.J. to Rodney Carney and we sure love that Timber Wolf. Who knows if the rumors are true about this walking highlight reel but here is a video of one of his ridiculous dunks.



What do you think, Tiger fans? Sound off.

Were we added because his name is Grant? Regardless, I'm cool with it.

I'm excited about anyway compared to Rodney Carney, but I can't help but notice a couple things...

All the guys he was playing against were white, so how much do we really know?

Also, did anyone else think the end of the video said Balls Life?
