Meet 7-Foot-5 Junior Tacko Fall, the Tallest High School Basketball Player in the U.S. Published: April 11, 2014

Liberty Christian Prep (Tavares, Fla.) junior Tacko Fall is America's tallest high school basketball player, according to Yahoo Sports.

At 7-foot-5, Fall stands 9 inches taller than LeBron James and just 3 inches shorter than 7-foot-8 D-Leaguer Paul Sturgess, the tallest professional basketball player alive. Fall also has an 8-foot wingspan and wears a size 22 shoe, just like Shaquille O'Neal.

During the 2013-14 season, Fall averaged 11.1 points, and his team was 11-15, which doesn't make much sense considering their only play could have been an alley-oop to Fall, who could slam the ball through the hoop over his foot-shorter defenders.
