Update:

I turned 15 last week, measured at 6'2, 155 pounds.
Since moving to the States and playing basketball on my school's freshman team, I started squatting/calf raises/ stairs and boxes during school workouts for the first time, and have been able to SMASH volleyballs, girls basketballs, even a slightly deflated basketball (lol), still closest I can come with a real basketball is doing a sort of a bowl spin thing where it slides down from the back of the rim and goes in, or usually i can't grip it or jump off right.

The best I can get off of two feet is hanging on the rim one handed/two handed.

Quick question, since i think i'm getting off up high enough to get a dunk down, just can't get it gripped or go off correctly, should i stop trying off one foot, and only practice 2 footed jumping to get more used to that?

Hey, you live in the US now? Cool

However you dunk a girls ball, just do that. Its not really that you should jump any certain way... whatever is best for you. Some people are one-footed jumpers, others are two. You just aren't there yet... pretty damn close though

He also squats 635x5, runs a 4.2, and is incredibly humble. He's definitely a person you want in your book of references.

My vertical is probably like 12" though I never officially measured. I am giving a conservative estimate so it might be more, but it definitely isn't two feet. I ain't gonna lie, I have no hops.
