Video: The Rookie With The Highest Vert, Ronald Roberts Jr.


When thinking about what rookies can play above the rim, everyone tends to think about Andrew Wiggins, Aaron Gordon, and Zach Lavine. Well, one rookie that went undrafted can make a case for himself when he steps onto the floor once the season is here. Ronald Roberts Jr., St. Joseph’s graduate, has a vertical of 45+ inches. Yes, you read that correctly, 45 inches!

Obviously, a player who goes undrafted is normally overlooked, but this is one guy who could make some noise by playing above the rim this year. Now that he’s on a young Philadelphia 76ers team, he could have many more chances to throw down many different dunks. A young team like this will want to get out on the break, and a dunker’s best friend is a pass-first point guard. Michael Carter-Williams and Roberts Jr. could be a match made in heaven, but we’ll have to wait and see the highlights on the sportscenter top ten. 

Watch the video below for some Ronald Roberts Jr. dunks and jumps.
