Most fans of a certain age remember seeing the likes of Shaquille O'Neal and Darryl Dawkins shatter rims with powerful dunks. Well, on Tuesday night, a sophomore prospect who is being pursued by both the UNC football and basketball programs brought back memories of those moments. He ended a game that was already well in hand by shattering a backboard with a wicked two-handed dunk.

Kendre Harrison of Reidsville, North Carolina--an hour north of Chapel Hill--is already attracting interest from a lot of major football and basketball programs. That includes both the football and basketball Tar Heels.

Hubert Davis sent some of his coaches to check Harrison out in early January, and Harrison recently made an official visit with the UNC football program. Harrison plays power forward in basketball and is the 22nd-ranked prospect in the nation, according to ESPN. A number of football programs are pursuing him as either a tight end or defensive end.

Harrison's latest addition to his basketball highlight reel ought to have Tar Heel basketball fans taking notice. With his Reidsville High Rams already well on their way to victory over inter-county rival Morehead High, Harrison took a pass from his cousin, Dionte Neal, on a fast break. Harrison took it to the hoop and threw it down so hard that he shattered the backboard and brought the rim crashing down. Watch footage from WFMY-TV in Greensboro here.

The dunk ended the game, allowing it to go in the books as a 63-43 win for Reidsville. The Rams have been rolling through their schedule like a freight train. This win brought them to 21-0, but they won't be satisfied unless they get another shot at the North Carolina 2A title. They made it all the way to the championship game last season, only to lose to Farmville Central.

Harrison is hoping to do something that has rarely been done in the annals of North Carolina high school sports--lead his school to a football and basketball state title in the same season. The football Rams won the 2A state title earlier this season. Harrison, Neal, and eight other members of the Rams basketball team were also on the football team. If the basketball Rams make it to the title game again, UNC basketball fans may get a chance to see Harrison in action firsthand; the title game is at the Smith Center.
