    Seriously talented Sophomore guard from D-III Illinois College (of course) displaying some incredible coordination and athleticism. He's only 5'11" but has an astonishing 50" vertical. He recently made this dunk video in hopes of getting invited to the NCAA Slam Dunk contest. If he were black, he'd be playing at the D-I level on full scholarship. I wonder how many more White guys are out there that are this talented but never get an opportunity. Probably a lot.

    I noticed Tucker made Blake Griffen's "car jump" dunk over a guy in the same exact spot as the car and Jacob did it with ease while being nearly a foot shorter than Blake. Jacob Tucker has "deceptive leaping ability and athleticism" if he were to be reviewed by any "expert."[​IMG]

    No way this is a D-III player, his dunks are better than most being showcased at the NBA All-Star game in the last several years.

    I've seen thousands of dunkers over the years. This kid might just be the best of them all. Incredible explosion off the ground to go with the coordination to die for. He is doing things I've only seen in a video game. Simply amazing! The kid will win the dunk contest in a rout. Will they invite him? I sure hope so. He needs a chance to play in the nba development league. Maybe he can improve his basketball skills enough to get a chance to play pro someday. At the worst case scenario, he should go play pro ball in Europe. He is too incredible to just do a normal job. WOW!

    At 1:40-1:44 on the dunking clip of Jacob his head goes higher than the rim
    on a dunk which is incredible for a player under 6 feet tall. That's some serious
    air!

    An awesome display of ball handling skills and leaping ability! There are tons of White men with incredible talent who are ignored. Many of them never even play the game on an organized level.

    I watched this video several times earlier today. Jacob Tucker is a fantastic athlete and I hope he gets a chance to steal the show at the NCAA dunk contest.

    WOW!
    Anyone been able to see if he has anything to his game other then deceptive athleticism? Did you see how high he got with that effort? He isn't the most explosive player I have ever seen but he works so hard.
    So sneaky with the air between his head and the rim. He won't out run anyone but he is all effort.

    Too bad he's not a real athlete, or he'd have a 60 inch vertical.

    With lunchpail hops, Jacob Tucker has a scrappy vertical.
    Hopefully the Powers That Be will allow him to participate in a Layup Contest somewhere.
    Perhaps he can do a reverse scoop shot from under the backboard or even a 360 finger roll! lol

    Amazing, I can't recall seeing anyone with better hops. He looks like a character from the comedy "Son of Flubber" from the early '60s. But I've seen a ton of White guys with excellent jumping ability just from posts and videos about them on this board.There'sa lot ofWhites that are absolute freaks when it comes to jumping. White Men Can Jump Big Time!

    Everyone, this is to take nothing away from Jacob. He is truly an incredible athlete. I would like everyone to please check out the John Clark thread. He is a friend of mine and I will be doing a bio write up on him soon. Please check out his videos and leave some support.

    An amazing feat, without question. Unfortunately, his self-esteem appears toflounder as low beneath the floor, from alifetime of white male bashing in the media andan inculcation of white guilt through education, than do his feet fly above it.

    I'd not heard of this Wonder Kid until yesterday, so the first vid I saw of him on You Tube was aninterviewwith ESPN--ESPecially Negro--in which I sensed what is now my opinion above of the poor brother's brainwashed state of guilt-riddened, low-selfesteemed mind.

    In the interview, responding to a question about who would win a contestbetween he and Blake Griffin, he actually apologized to the Mulatto winner ofthe NBA car hop dunk,saying,''I hopethat he would not hate me''. Hate me? I guess, pleasedon't hate me for beating anon-white man.

    If that's not enough to understand this beaten-down, white male's state of mind, he also said, before apologizing for even thinking about possibly defeating a non-white manin a ball contest,''I'm very sure that my girlfriend would be voting for Blake Griffin.''

    Ok, there you go. That's all I need to know! Now I'm assuming the girlfriend is white, so, let me say to young Master Tucker: If your white girlfriend has a 'thing' for blacks and mulattos, son, it's just a matter of time before she's stepping out with them--if not sooner!

    Jacob Tucker is but a symptom of our real problems: The ruined white male--beaten down, of low confidence and self-esteem, turned against by his own women.

    Welcome to the board, Marquis. Excellent first post, and an illustration of what we are up against in the caste system. More and morehonkey crackers are starting to figure it out, however. I hope that Jacob can find his way here so that he can re-edumencate himself. Edited by: FootballDad

    Ditto FootballDad's comments, Marquis, and welcome to CF! That is sad to hear, but it isn't surprising.

    Maybe with all of the attention he is getting, he will gain some self confidence and quit cutting himself down. White athletes are almost always humble and it is sometimes our downfall. This kid has a gift from God and I'm sure he has also worked to get his jumping to this point. He needs to have some swagger and confidence. He should walk with a bounce in his step and know he is the man. He also should know that he got screwed over because of the caste system in sports. There is no way he should be stuck playing on a Div. III School. If only he could have went to a Div IA School and got the proper coaching, he might have been a star. Can you imagine if he could learn to shoot like Fredette to go with those hops. He would be amazing. I hope he doesn't give up on his dream. Maybe he can play in Europe somewhere.

    Looks like we got our wish.

    <h2 ="title">Division III YouTube sensation earns spot in NCAA dunk contest</h2> By Ryan Greene</span></span>


    <div ="bd">



    The Internet has spoken, and Jacob Tucker has been
    granted his rightful spot in the college slam dunk contest later this
    week in Houston.



    The 5-foot-11 guard from Division III Illinois College went viral earlier this month
    in his pursuit of a spot in the competition. To date, his video
    audition has received more than 2.6 million views on YouTube, and now he
    and his supposed 50-inch vertical leap will represent the little guy â€"
    in more ways than one.




    The competition will be fierce, as he'll be jockeying with Pitt's
    Gilbert Brown, St. John's Justin Burrell, Memphis' Will Coleman, East
    Tennessee State's Justin Tubbs, San Diego State's Billy White,
    Cincinnati's Darnell Wilks and UNC Asheville's John Williams. None of
    them stand shorter than 6-foot-3.



    Tucker doesn't care.


    "I feel with the dunks I have practiced and the dunks I have in my arsenal, I have a chance," Tucker said.
    "I'm not going to leak them out. I will say there's a couple dunks you
    haven't seen me do before or some you've never seen before."



    Tucker earned his way in by winning a Facebook fan poll, in whichthe
    public voted for one non-Division I-competitor to join the contest. He
    beat out Lee University's Larriques Cunningham in a landslide, nabbing
    88 percent of the vote.



    The contest will air Thursday night on ESPN2 at 9 p.m. ET.


    Ryan Greene also covers UNLV and the Mountain West Conference for the Las Vegas Sun. Read his Rebels coverage and follow him on Twitter.

    One idiot on Yahoo claims all his dunks are fixed. In this case, I am almost definite the moron is black.
