The 7'5 California high school basketball player is pretty good (Video)

In the world of high school basketball, the story of Mamadou Ndiaye is one that you definitely need to know about.

Ndiaye currently plays for Brethren Christian High School in Huntington Beach, California and  dominates whenever he is on the floor.

Why you may ask? Ndiaye is only 18-years old but is an astounding 7'5 which is two inches taller than anyone in the National Basketball Association.

If you want to know why division one college basketball programs are salivating over him, check out this highlight film of a recent game:

Ndiaye grew up in Senegal and his growth spurt is attributed to tumor on his pituitary gland that has since been removed.
