Javonte Douglas is a 6-foot-8 forward from Charlotte, NC. Originally a member of the Class of 2012, Douglas decided to forego a year of prep school coming out of high school and instead went the JuCo route. He spent the 2012-2013 season putting up all-american caliber numbers at Hill College in Texas before transferring to the College of Central Florida, where he had an immediate impact.
It’s not the best video quality, but as you can see, Douglas nearly kills himself as he dunks over three guys — include someone on his own team — on a tip-dunk. And yes, that’s his face at rim level.
Douglas has had an interesting recruitment, as he’s committed and decommitted from Central Florida and Southern Miss within the last year.
