Eighth-grader Chol Marial's early growth spurt has him more than head and shoulders above his peers. He also looks physically able to thrive against tougher competition. 

Marial, who was born in South Sudan, played with West Oaks (Florida) High School's varsity team this past season. According to P2bball.com, the 15-year-old has a staggering 7'11" wingspan and is "a basketball player in every sense of the word."

For his size, Marial is very fluid, has impressive handles, a smooth jump shot and insane dunking ability. Expect him to be a matchup nightmare for years to come.
