Two high school basketball stars have electrified Twitter and inspired their future fan bases with creative and sensationally athletic dunks.
Donovan Mitchell, who has committed to Louisville, and Derrick Jones, who has committed to UNLV, are both four-star recruits (according to Rivals.com) who have made waves the past few days with these impressive slams.
Mitchell is a 6-foot-2 guard from New York and the star of a nine-second clip in which he makes a three-point shot and, before the ball touches the ground, brings it back for a windmill slam.

The video has earned Mitchell lots of publicity and even some imitators:

Jones, who is from outside Philadelphia, put on an equally impressive display of skill. In his dunk, the 6-foot-6 swingman took off from the foul line and threw down a windmill dunk:

This isn't Jones' first highlight reel moment, and he's been labeled the best high school dunker in the country. Here's another one of his impressive dunks:
