So, here’s the deal. At 7-foot-5, Elhadji “Tacko” Fall is the tallest prep athlete in the country, and the young hoops star is a tantalizing collegiate and NBA prospect. In fact, Fall is such a unique prospect that he’s become must see video eery time he hits the floor against legitimate (read: not local prep rivals) competition.
He’s certainly facing that now at the AAU Nationals, but that hasn’t slowed his proverbial roll through everything in his path.
The video you see above, from the good folks at Courtside Films, showcases everything that Fall did in the first two games he competed in at the AAU Nationals. To call Fall an unfair advantage would not be a stretch (no pun intended).
The more of these dominating highlights we see, the clearer it becomes both that A) it is absolutely, categorically impossible to defend him and, B) he has significantly more agility and dexterity than most of the Sequoia-sized big men who have come before him.
Given his interest in biochemistry, brainy hoops power programs might want to take numbers now to court Fall. Vanderbilt? Stanford? Cal? Georgetown? Please don’t choose Duke, Tacko. That would be completely unfair.
