I was at the meet and watched him jump last night. He cleared 7' pretty easily. He made 3 attempts at 7'2" and was very close to clearing that as well. I think he gets that before the season is done.
Also not mentioned is the fact that 2nd place jumper Tequan Claitt from Bryan Station cleared 6' 8" and has a personal best of 6' 10".
This all happened in the Fayette County Public School Championship meet. Quite a lot of talent in the other events last night as well. There were a total of 10 National Elite level performances turned in.
