WATCH: 350-pound Tennessee signee Elijah Simmons dunks, makes full-court shot
Tennessee signee Elijah Simmons is a big guy. The 3-star defensive tackle out of Nashville is listed at 350 pounds on his 247Sports page.
However, he’s also super-athletic, as he proved on his high school’s basketball court on Wednesday afternoon.
As you can see below, Simmons elevates to throw down a dunk and then turns around and nails an incredible full-court shot:

As the tweet says, that’s the sort of skill that Tennessee basketball coach Rick Barnes will love seeing, so perhaps Simmons is playing the wrong sport.
Jeremy Pruitt is getting an incredible athlete for his defensive line, and at the very least, the football team’s pickup basketball games will be much more competitive now.
