bol bolThe late Manute Bol, Sudanese-born NBA player and activist, has apparently passed on his b-ball DNA to his son, Bol Bol (pictured above). The seventh grader, who stands at 6-foot-5, is already demonstrating brow-raising skills on the hardwood, The Washington Post.

Bol Bol, who attends middle school in Kansas, was the subject of a video which highlights his not-so-novice playing skills as a young baller that was put together by YouTube user CityLeagueHoops TV. There is also a scouting report on the younger Bol that casts him among the top 5 prospects in the 2018 class.

The footage which was filmed at the Crossroads Elite basketball camp in Indianapolis, Ind., shows that Bol Bol, who bears a stunning resemblance to his dad, has the skills and concentration that it takes to be a successful player.

It is apparent that even at this stage of the game, Bol Bol’s height and skill sets will secure him a college scholarship. Check out the video below.

Bol Bol’s father, who stood at 7-foot-7, was one of the tallest players to ever hit the courts in the NBA. Though he was not an offensive force, Bol sharpened his shot-blocking abilities and was a dependable defensive threat in the middle of the paint.

He died two years ago at the young age of 47 from kidney failure and complications from Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, a life-threatening skin condition.
