POSTERIZED: High-major prospect Develle Phillips dunks on 7-footer Thon Maker (VIDEO)

Apr 21, 2014, 7:50 PM EDT

Develle Phillips is a 2015 forward that you’ll likely hear more about as the spring and summer goes along, but the 6-foot-8 forward from Clinton Christian High School in Upper Marlboro, Maryland put down an early candidate for best dunk of the spring over the weekend at the Hoop Group’s Southern Jam Fest.

Why was this dunk so impressive, you ask? Because it came on elite rising-junior Thon Maker, who led the Nike EYBL in blocked shots last year while being a consensus national top-five player in the 2016 class. The 7-foot Maker caused quite a bit of commotion in the basketball community earlier this year for his own mixtape, but on this play, he was apart of someone else’s highlight-reel play.

Phillips is running with D.C. Premier this spring and reportedly picked up a scholarship offer from Cincinnati on Monday, according to Jamie Shaw of Phenom Hoops Report.

    Nice aggressive dunk, but no need for the entire crowd to act like it was the first dunk in history. Pretty weak effort by Thon Maker to try and protect the rim, can’t rest on any play.
