Jericho Sims jumped so high on a dunk he hit his head on the rim

Texas Longhorns forward Jericho Sims on Tuesday was among the prospects that participated in the Klutch Sports Pro Day from California, and the high-flyer went a bit viral after his performance.

Sims is coming off a stellar performance during the NBA draft combine last month. He produced the third-highest max vertical jump ever recorded at the event and is said to have helped his draft stock perhaps more than any other prospect.

The 6-foot-10 product put that leaping ability on full display during his Pro Day, and there is video to back it up.

During one drill, Sims went up for a dunk attempt and proceeded to throw the ball off the backboard to himself for the alley-oop. He took off perhaps a little too high and then appeared to hit his face on the rim, as captured by @MGRADS on Twitter.

Sims averaged 9.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocked shots in 26 games last season.
