John Wall has yet to play a game for John Calipari at Kentucky, but the incoming freshman is already drawing attention for his high-flying moves.
Wall, the nation's top recruit from the class of 2009, dunked over NBA veteran Jerry Stackhouse at the S.J.G. Great NC Pro-Am Summer Basketball League. In the video, which has since gone viral on YouTube, Wall cruises past a defender on the perimeter and rises up on Stackhouse, who is the last remaining defender. Just as LeBron James was a step too late to prevent Xavier guard Jordan Crawford from posterizing him last month, the same fate fell upon Stackhouse at an event he helped found. The public address announcer can be heard saying, "John Wall's in the building!"
The rest of college basketball will soon recognize the name -- and awe-inspiring moves.
