WATCH: 6-foot-3 Texas Freshman Can Touch The Top of the Backboard

A University of Texas freshman hoopster shows off his incredible leaping ability.

Kerwin Roach Jr., a freshman guard for the University of Texas basketball team, has major ups. He can jump up and nearly touch the top of the backboard. Honestly, he probably could if he tried. Oh yeah, and he's only 6-foot-3.

Roach posted a video of himself on Twitter leaping and touching the highest mark on a vertical measurement test next to a basketball hoop. His head was well above the rim. He also posted one showing him doing a standing backflip, stating that he didn't even have to stretch. Roach is obviously a freak athlete.
