ESPN – Basketball recruiting junkies know the name Thon Maker. The South Sudan-born 17-year-old, who now plays for The Athlete Institute in suburban Toronto, is viewed as one of the top prospects in the world — even though it’s unclear whether he’ll head to college in 2015 or 2016 (he’s currently on track for 2016 but could reclassify).
Luckily for us, Maker’s talent isn’t visible only to scouts and coaches. As anyone can see on this highlight reel, his skills are just silly.
To watch just a few minutes of Maker’s fluidity running the floor, his guard-like handle, his passing, his shooting — and, oh yeah, a big man’s size — makes it no surprise that, according to ESPN recruiting, he’s being pursued by Arizona. And Duke. And Florida, and Kansas, and Kentucky, and Louisville and on and on …
I would have said Coach K too but I seriously doubt Coach K ejaculates. Just like sits in his office with his hands on his cheeks smiling while he lets out a couple of quiet farts. I don’t know why but I picture Coach K farting when he gets excited.
Kind of a weird tangent there but anyway, Thon Maker continues to not only have the most badass recruit name ever but also drop the hottest hoops mixtapes on the market. If this kid’s college career is anything like his high school mixtape career where they take out all the bad plays and splice the awesome ones together into 2 minute video segments then we’re looking at the next NBA superstar and hall of famer right here.
