We all knew Anfernee Simons has hops for days, but did you know he's been doing it way before the NBA?

Lucky for us, Simons posted a throwback hype video on his Instagram from his days before the Portland Trail Blazers.

Enjoy.

Ant was a 2018 five-star prospect out of IMG Academy and the No. 3 rated recruit from the state of Florida behind RJ Barrett and (his now NBA teammate) Nassir Little, according to 247 sports composite.

He took college visits at the University of Tennessee and NC State before making the decision to forgo college and turn pro at age 19. 

On June 21, 2018, his NBA dreams became reality when the Portland Trail Blazers selected Simons with the No. 24 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Throw it down young fella!
