Manute Bol had five children. One, Bol Bol, is now in high school in Kansas. He’s proving the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
The video you see above, from MaxPreps, shows Bol Bol dominating Bishop Miege’s first junior varsity game of the year. He may be a freshman in the classroom, but on the court, he’s a power player.
Bol Bol already stands 6-foot-10 and is surprisingly comfortable with his own size and dimensions, particularly for a 14-year-old.
The next obvious question is: What is Bol Bol doing playing junior varsity basketball? The answer has everything to do with eligibility. The freshman transferred into Bishop Miege from Blue Valley Northwest early in the school year, but he had already technically started at Blue Valley. That created some gray area about when he should be eligible to begin competition.
Until those deliberations are completed, Bol Bol will have to bide his time with the junior varsity. That’s clearly not fair, for him or his foes.
