Kameron Williams: The Dunking Heir to Sam Thompson

By Jason Priestas on June 4, 2013 at 7:09a

Ohio State fans will have high-flying Sam Thompson for another season, quite possibly two, but his heir, at least in the dunking game, will be on campus soon.

Kameron Williams, a guard from Mount Saint Joseph high in Baltimore, will suit up for the Buckeyes this winter and if his highlights from the West Coast All-Star Classic Slam Dunk competition are any indication, That Matta will have two guys capable of jumping out of the gym.

And while Thompson is 6-foot-7, Williams is listed at a generous 6-foot-2. Minutes may be tough for Williams to come by as a freshman, but come garbage time, watch out.

Once more, all GIF'd up:

Holy smokes! I guess the Juan Dixon comparison led me to believe this guy wasn't a freak athlete. Really excited about Kameron joining the program this year.

Absolutely. Same comparison had me thinking exactly the same as you! Verrrry Niiice!

I honestly don't think minutes will be hard for him to come by. Kid has an offensive repertoire and we're gonna need some perimeter scoring off the bench.

Nice! Feeling good abot Kam and Marc contributing early this coming season.
The kid that won, Zach Lavine, he got some serious hops.

All that bounce looks great in Scarlet and Gray!

Damn, nothing against Kam (K-slam...Slameron?), but that kid that won has got some very serious ups! Good video for dunk fans....

That dunk @ 2:12 - 2:20 is beyond sick. Kid named Zach Lavine has serious skills in the dunking department, now if he has overall excellent basketball skills look him up. Ha.

Kam is abt to get buckets as a buckeye. Love his offensive game

I really hope Thad lets Kam play some in the non-conference schedule to develop him early a la Izzo at MSU. Let the young kids learn and make mistakes against lower tier competition at first so they can perform against the B1G. With Kameron's beast of an offenseive game I see some serious potential minutes off the bench if he lives up to the hype

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

This kid has talent but I still think Slam Thompson can jump higher! IMO

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I think you're right, but I also think Slam can jump higher than....everyone!
