America’s Tallest Basketball Player Is a Huge Thrill to Watch [VIDEO]

Size matters.

That’s definitely the case with seven-foot-five-inch Tacko ‘Taco’ Fall. Fall, originally from Senegal, is believed to be the tallest high school athlete in America, playing basketball at Florida’s Liberty Christian Prep.

Taco is taller than anyone currently in the NBA, although his game still needs to be honed — he averaged 11 points for a team that only went 11-15 this past season.

He eats entire pizzas with chicken and hamburger on them so his weight will keep pace with height.

Fall currently doesn’t have any scholarship offers (although some schools have shown interest), but you’d have to think that may change, given the challenge he presents on the court.

He also may not be the last member of his family who makes waves on the hardwood. He has a seven-year-old brother who’s already five-foot-nine.
