Video: 5-star recruit shatters backboard with slam
Sunday June 21st, 2015

Now here’s an impressive addition to a high school recruit’s highlight reel.

Cody Riley, a five-star power forward from Chatsworth (Sierra Canyon), Calif., shattered a backboard during this weekend’s 2015 Summer Block Party at Maranatha High School in Pasadena.

That exhibition of eye-opening power should help boost Riley’s profile online, though the 6'7", 225-pound 2017 recruit already has reported scholarship offers from Arizona, Kansas, Maryland and USC. has him ranked as the nation’s No. 14 recruit in the class of 2017.

Not surprisingly, Riley already had some highlight videos online before this dunk. This dunk, however, should take his profile to a new level.
