Tallest high school basketball player in the United States


Get a load of this teenager, he's 16 year old Elhadji Tacko Fall And he's the tallest high school basketball player in the nation. Falls, who's nickname is "Taco" stands 7ft 5in.

That's four-inches *taller* than retired n-b-a star Shaquille O'Neal! His shoe size? 22. Fall moved from Senegal to take up basketball in hopes of becoming an NBA phenom.

But with a 4.0, grade point average, Fall admits he'd be perfectly happy as a biochemist.
