When deciding to actually fly over people, UNLV commit Derrick Jones wins the prize as he soars over four guys, including a seven-footer.

High School senior Derrick Jones, who has committed to attend UNLV on a basketball scholarship this coming fall, did something that has now amazed the eye.

The 6’7″ wing-player soared through the air over not one, not two, not three, but four players en route to the winning dunk in the Mary Kline Classic, via Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv. One of the players, Josh Sharma, is actually a 7-footer.

Jones is from Archbishop Carroll of Pennsylvania, and is no stranger to winning dunk contests. Last year, he took home the crown of the Under Armour Elite 24 Game.

Zach Lavine, reigning NBA Slam Dunk contest winner might have his work cut out for him in a couple of years.

What this also does is completely put to waste those dunks that feature only one fella who is getting leaped over.
