Meet Brittney Griner, the 6’8″ sophomore from Houston’s Nimitz High School. See video of her game last night, in which she showed off her dunks.
It’s hard to believe that Griner just started playing organized basketball last year, when she was a freshman. At the time, she was 6’0 and played on the JV team. She eventually made her way to the varsity team and averaged 13 points per game and was named first-team all-district honors.
What’s even more amazing is she has sprouted six inches in the last year and even dunked in a game. She’s become an internet sensation since her dunking feats have been showcased on YouTube. College recruiters came a callin’, including powerhouses from Texas A &M, LSU, Texas, Miami, and Wake Forest. She has verbally committed to Baylor, because she can’t sign a letter of intent until November 2008.
