This comes via Kennedy Meeks' Instragram and delivers visual evidence of both Meeks' new-found dunking ability and his chiseled frame.
I am guessing if ESPN did a top 50 list of strength and conditioning coaches in college basketball Jonas Sahratian would be at the top of the list.
Joe Giglio of the News and Observer raises an interesting point on preseason ACC predictions and how Meeks factors into where UNC will fan compared to Duke.
@DocHeelfire had a Duke fan ask me why the national writers are all picking Duke in hoops next season but all the local writers like UNC— Joe Giglio (@jwgiglio) July 27, 2014
@DocHeelfire I think Meeks is a big part of the answer, national guys gave up on him in high school— Joe Giglio (@jwgiglio) July 27, 2014
Anyone who has watched UNC player development(like the local media has) knows there are a few Tar Heels set to make big strides towards being effective contributors.
If Meeks' overall physical conditioning and explosiveness is in line with this basketball IQ and skill set then UNC is very much a Final Four contender.
