The Stars of March Madness in High School

If you thought they were dominant this season, check out what they did in high school.

Jahlil Okafor, Duke (Class of 2014)

Jahlil Okafor looked almost unfair in high school. Despite rarely jumping high enough to slide more than a couple of pieces of paper under him, he totally dominated the competition, dunking and blocking everything in sight. Things haven't changed too much since then.

Justise Winslow, Duke (Class of 2014)

Built like a man when his opponents still didn't have to shave, Winslow just dominated physically in high school. Check out his tip slam midway through this video, or the way he swallows shots rather than just blocking them.

Willie Cauley-Stein, Kentucky (Class of 2014)

And now, for two and a half straight minutes of dunks. Enjoy.

Trey Lyles, Kentucky (Class of 2014)

Polished and fiery with an NBA body, there's no wonder he ended up at Kentucky. I wonder if the rest of the coaches just gave up trying to recruit him when Calipari showed up.

Montrezl Harrell, Louisville (Class of 2012)

Kind of like the Willie Cauley-Stein video, except Harrell actually tries to murder the rim every time he dunks and deflate the ball every time he blocks a shot.

Delon Wright, Utah (Class of 2011)

It's a wonder that Delon Wright ended up choosing Utah. He had offers from Washington, Washington State, Gonzaga, and Saint Mary's, but just judging by this video it seems like he should have had looks from Kentucky and UCLA. Turns out, he should have.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Arizona (Class of 2013)

Windmills on windmills. You don't see a guy like this in high school - 6'7" and long, ready to contribute in the Pac-12 his freshman year.

Branden Dawson, Michigan State (Class of 2011)

Remember the guy in middle school that had been held back a few grades, and so he was way bigger and stronger than anyone else? That's Branden Dawson - except for the being held back part.
