We usually don’t like to talk about high school underclassmen on CBT, but Manute Bol’s son, Bol Bol is an exception. Already standing 6-foot-10 with a high skill level, the younger Bol had a mixtape released from Ball is Life this week and based on his size, skill level and blood lines, he could be in-line to be a big-time college basketball prospect.
The 7-foot-7 Manute played in the NBA for nearly a decade and passed away in 2010 and his son lives in Kansas and attends Overland Park North High School.
I had a chance to see Bol Bol play at the Pangos Frosh/Soph Midwest Camp outside of Chicago last fall and he was 6-foot-6 with very good hand-eye coordination and timing for a player his age and size. Even though Bol was one of the younger players in attendance, he made the camp’s top 40 all-star game and looked like a player to track. Now that he’s 6-foot-10, it’s even more apparent and the next step for Bol will be to add strength.
And let’s hope that some uninformed writer doesn’t start labeling Bol as some future NBA superstar clone without Bol ever playing a high school basketball game.
