Meet Connor Vanover, A 7-Foot-1 8th-Grader Who Shoots With A Soft Touch (VIDEO)

Already sprouting to a reported 7-foot-1, eighth-grader Connor Vanover could be expected to get his share of rebounds and blocked shots. But as the video from CityLeagueHoopsTV shows, the kid has a surprisingly light touch on his jump shot.

According to The Big Lead, Vanover, from Little Rock, Arkansas, has grown 7 inches in the last nine months.

At least in the height department, Vanover is already ahead of Shawn Bradley, the 7-foot-6 former NBA player who was one of the tallest to ever play in the league. Bradley told he was a mere 6 feet 8 inches tall in the eighth grade.
