Kerwin Roach Jr.’s collegiate basketball career is off to a flying start.

Roach is an incoming freshman guard at Texas, and on Tuesday, the Houston native tweeted a video of himself doing a vertical leap drill for the Longhorns.

A note before you watch: Roach is 6-foot-3.

To reiterate: Roach is shorter than many NBA guards but apparently can reach the top of the backboard. That’s just absurd.

As if this amazing video didn’t convince us enough of his ridiculous athleticism, Roach tweeted out a second video later Tuesday.

Roach ranked 47th on ESPN’s Top 100 prospects in this year’s class, so it’s clear he can do more than just jump through the gym. But seriously: Get this kid to an NBA Slam Dunk Contest ASAP.
