We've seen a lot of promising young talent on the basketball court in recent history, from Julian Newman to Thon Maker to Seventh Woods. Now there's a new addition: 4'11" Chase Adams, a 13-year-old from Chicago with some incredible ball-handling and passing abilities.

Adams is now 13 years old and has grown an inch, but when he was a seventh-grader (as seen in the video), he led the eighth-grade team to a 56-3 record with the help of teammate Marquise "Kezo" Brown, according to Ballislife Midwest.

It's always a good sign to see such developed talent at such a young age, and it's even better when we see it pay off later. Here's hoping we get to see Adams again on a big stage in the future.
