Meet Chol Marial, the Nation's Biggest College Basketball Recruit

B/R StudiosFeatured ColumnistOctober 5, 2016

When Chol Marial left South Sudan to embark on a basketball career in the United States, he had no idea how much hype or YouTube hits he'd encounter.

That's because Chol isn't your average high school basketball player. At 16, he's already 7'2" and still growing—but that's not why colleges and scouts are drooling over the Sudanese talent. 

Of course Chol's height allows him to block shots and dunk with ease. Those are standard for a player of his stature. No, potential suitors are excited because he has a 38-inch vertical, can shoot from anywhere on the floor and can handle the ball like a point guard.

Take a look at Chol in this exclusive video.
