Basketball fans love this time of year as the NBA Playoffs have entered its final four. With no football for a few more months and semesters ending, the focus has shifted to the hardwood or to college baseball diamonds.
SEC players are certainly superb athletes. And sometimes they have to remind us that they are not only good on a field in pads, but can also throw down in the most primal and athletic way possible.
South Carolina wide receiver Deebo Samuel showed off all his athleticism on this dunk he posted to Twitter:

Indeed, Samuel certainly caught whoever this poor defender was and put him on a poster.
The 6-foot, 205-pound sophomore wide receiver has plenty of ups and is the top returning receiver for the Gamecocks this year. He caught 12 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in five games last year. He is expected to take a step up next season with a depleted wide receiver group entering the fall.
Athleticism like this certainly will come in handy as he takes that step up.
