Duke basketball freshman Zion Williamson dunks from beyond free-throw line

Duke's Zion Williamson made dunking from the free-throw line look too easy

Anyone that has watched Zion Williamson play knows he's going to develop into a star. He committed to Duke last October.

The 6-foot-7, 285-pound phenom took flight on Tuesday during a practice session at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.

That's right: Free. Throw.

In fact, during a recent shootaround, Williamson flashed his insane leaping ability while playing around with teammate R.J. Barrett.


The five-star prospect was rated as the No. 1 power forward in the nation and the top player in the state of SC. The Blue Devils wrap up the Canada tour with a game against McGill University on Sunday at Place Bell in Montreal.

The five-star power forward joins the Duke Blue Devil's this year as one of the most highly touted recruits in the Class of 2018.

Whereas once National Basketball Association superstars were the people who could dunk from the free-throw line, youngsters like the incoming Duke Blue Devils freshman are doing it nowadays.
