It's weird to see a guy so small naturally go off one leg considering the lack of leverage.

No idea , but we can guess.
He is 5'6'' , so his reach must be around the 7'4'' area , probably less but let's say he has long arms. For a dunk like that he needs to get at least 10'' over the rim ( again arguably but that's what it looks like and that's how much i need to do cuffed 1-handers ).

So 10'10'' - 7'4'' = 42''

Since this was an in-game dunk with a defender crashing him mid-air , id guess he could get a couple of inches higher at his best jump , i'd accept a legit 45'' RVJ speculation...
woot

It's confirmed he's got 48" rvj.  This dude has the most fast twitch muscle fibers out of african americans, this was in season too.

also he has to be able to get atleast 12-14 inches over rim to throw it down like this:

Seton Hall... this dude's got hands the size of forwards... pretty sure he would just annihilate the college game with his speed. 

It's like a greyhound playing football, who's gonna catch that lil thing.
