The first game of the high school basketball season is usually reserved for knocking the offseason rust off and getting acclimated to playing against someone other than the guys on your own team.
But for Arlington Country Day (Fla.) forward Dante Buford, his first game of the season wasn't about getting back to full speed. Nope, his first game was all about putting on an impressive show for the fans that showed up for Arlington Country Day's season opener against Faith Baptist Christian (Fla.).
Normally one highlight-reel dunk per game is enough to get you noticed. Buford, however, prefers his in pairs, after he pulled off two of the best dunks of the early season with a reverse alley-oop and an eye-popping windmill putback that looked like something you'd see in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
The 6-foot-6 junior clearly has some impressive hops, and based on the way he's been playing over the last couple of seasons, it's no surprise that N.C. State, South Carolina, Clemson, Illinois and Virginia Commonwealth are chasing his signature.
If he keeps throwing down incredible dunks on a regular basis, you can be sure the list of potential suitors will grow as the year goes on.
