This Just In: Dez Wells Really, Really Good at Dunking

There's a lot I could say about newly-minted Terrapin Dezmine Wells. I could talk about how he appears to have been shafted by Xavier, or about how he was one of the best freshmen in the country last season, or about how his strength, athleticism, and toughness makes him like a premium version of Justin Anderson.

I could talk about all of those things, but I won't. Instead, I'll just get out of the way and post a bunch of videos of probably the most powerful dunker in college basketball. I'm getting flashbacks to the Steve Francis and Chris Wilcox glory days here.

Throw in the occasional Alex Len slam, Nick Faust poster, and Shaquille Cleare facial, and this is team with some dunks in it. Oh how I've missed the days of "just throw it up, someone will go and get it." Pe'Shon Howard is gonna have his hands full distributing the balls in this offense.

Oh, and by the by: it's easy to paint Wells as a dunker (and he is one), but that's not all he does. Given some time, you'll see he has a lot more to him, offensively and defensively, than just the occasional poster.

Not that I'm complaining about the posters, mind you.
