Watch: Indiana’s Justin Smith sets record with 48-inch vertical
Indiana forward Justin Smith is proving that gravity is for losers.
The 6-foot-7 sophomore broke an all-time school record with an unreal 48-inch max vertical this week. Smith’s jump easily shattered Victor Oladipo’s old record of 42 inches and tied the NBA Combine record as well. Have a look:

The 19-year-old Smith averaged 6.5 points and 3.2 rebounds in 14.9 minutes per game for the Hoosiers last season as a freshman. He could be in line for an increased role next season now that senior forwards Freddie McSwain and Collin Hartman have graduated.
Between Smith and another flashy attraction, head coach Archie Miller should have a deep and entertaining team to compete in the Big Ten this coming year.
