Single Jumper says hello

Hey guys I am a single leg jumper and hope to be able to dunk before my first year of college.
Are my stats:
6'0 ft
8'0 standing reach
6'2 wingspan
170
29-30 inch make vert
Very slow
I can grab rim and dunk a deflated soccer ball t
Did long jump and triple in high school.

I starting back my training intensity back up after couple week break. I've been doing single leg tuck jumps 12 sets times 20 each leg. Deep squats with 160.  Jumping and dunking. I did track workouts before which involved sprinting and bounds. I want also become more posterior dominant and reactive.

I think have weakness in my lower legs and quads because I can't run fast and jump high I have to slow down and take quick three step acceleration to jump. I also hope to improve my speed.
 It would be cool if could take off in a fast break and slam.

here some of my videos

If you have any tips for single leg jumping that would be helpful.

hey man, welcome to the forum
good luck with your goals.
 :lololol:
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground.

Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm
