Coen Carr is one of the best athletes in recent memory. But is he the best high school basketball athlete since Zion?

When you think about some of the greatest athlete prospects in high school hoops over the years, it’s tough to begin a list without Zion Williamson.

The former Duke prospect was one of the most talked about athletes in the history of recruiting and it was because he could jump out of the gym. He would be throwing down highlight dunks left and right and college basketball fans just wanted to see how that translated to the next level. And he didn’t disappoint.

Well, there must be something in the water in South Carolina because Coen Carr has been lauded as one of the best athletes since Zion and Slam posted a video (shared by Carter Elliott) that asked if he had the “most bounce” since Williamson.

It’s a fair question. While Zion was a freak because he was built like a tank and it didn’t make a ton of sense that he could jump as high as he did. Seeing a 6-6, 275-pound forward dunking with such ferocity and anger was just a sight to behold. It was almost unbelievable. Zion had to be the best athlete with the most bounce as a recruit that I can remember, but it’s cool seeing Coen Carr earn some similar praise.

Is Carr the same type of prospect as Zion? Obviously not. People touted Zion as a “generational” talent and he was the No. 1 overall pick by the Pelicans. Carr is an NBA prospect but he will have to prove he has a good all-around game before he’s even mentioned as a potential lottery pick.

Still, any time your athleticism is compared to Zion Williamson’s, you know you’re special.

And Coen Carr is special.
