Tacko Fall, who stands 7’5″, is unstoppable.

Likely the tallest player in high school basketball, he’s always turning heads in the gym.

“Everywhere I go, people want to take pictures, talk to me, shake my hand, but I’m getting used to it now,” the Tavares (Fla.) Liberty Christian Prep junior told the Orlando Sentinel last year.

Fall arrived in Florida from Dakar, Senegal with little to no organized basketball experience. He has also lived in Texas, Ohio and Tennessee.

According to the Sentinel, he’s eating entire pizzas covered in chicken and hamburger to keep weight on his 250-pound frame.

“I’m hoping to play professional basketball,” he said, “but at the same I time I want to be a biochemist.”

      Was that his quote or a miss type as you know Fox doesn’t proofread before printing. “Fall arrived in Florida from Dakar, Senegal with little to no organized basketball experience.” He will also need skills to go with his height or else we’ll just have a clumpsy high school basketball player.

    He wouldn’t do well in the NBA(to tall & slow). Yao Ming proved that if your to tall it causes disruption to your team.
