High School Sophomore Thon Maker Is 7'1'' and Has Ridiculous Skills

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIJanuary 5, 2017

When you see a high school mixtape for a basketball player over 7 feet tall, you expect to see a dominating defensive presence who can also make big plays above the rim.

For high school sophomore Thon Maker, he can do all of that and more.

Despite his 7'1'' frame, Maker doesn't play solely down low. In the video above, he shows off the handles of a guard along with a very polished jump shot and some impressive range. 

Put all of that together and you have a rare center who colleges will likely be fighting over once he becomes available in 2016.

Hat tip to Stephen Douglas from The Big Lead for the find.
