Video: 5th-Grader Ashlyn Watkins Throws It Down6-foot-1 11-year-old is ahead of her peers on the court.
Ashlyn Watkins is a regular fifth-grade girl, except that she has nearly super-human ability on the basketball court.
The 6-foot-1 Watkins threw down an impressive two-handed dunk seemingly with ease on Saturday, in an East Columbia Youth Basketball League (ECYBL) game in South Carolina.
Watkins got behind the defense, took a pass, and headed straight for the hoop. She elevated with ease and threw down a powerful dunk, much to the delight of the crowd.
The game was played on nine-foot rims, but it probably won't be long before Watkins is dunking on regulation rims. She's already reportedly grabbing the rim on 10-foot hoops.
At her current rate, Watkins could become the youngest female to ever dunk a basketball on a regulation-sized hoop.
