New Video Emerges Of 7-Foot-9-Inch Teenager Abiodun Adegoke Dunking Without Jumping

Forget Tacko Fall, there's a new man mountain basketball player on the block.

Say hello to Abiodun Adegoke.

The 7-foot-9-inch viral sensation is currently sending social media into meltdown - and you can see exactly why.

Despite still being a teenager, he's already two inches taller than the legendary Manute Bol who was the tallest player to ever play in the NBA.

But not only that, Adegoke seems like he possesses genuine talent too.

And the latest video to emerge of him online has basketball fans calling for college and NBA teams to snap him up.

Footage surfaced on social media showing Adegoke dunking the ball with both feet still planted firmly on the court.

That's right, he's so tall that he doesn't eve need to jump.

I mean, even Shaquille O'Neal had to jump while attempting a dunk.

Another video posted on Adegoke's shows him working out in the United Arab Emirates.

In the clip, he receives the ball in the paint and has the physicality to hold off the defence before dunking the ball.

It just goes to show how dangerous he could be in the future.

But perhaps the most intriguing part of the video is seeing how tiny everyone else looks in comparison to the big man.

In another TikTok clip, Adegoke stands side-by-side with a 5-foot-6-inch basketball player showing just how much taller he really is.

And while the smaller player simply lays up his shot, the towering Adegoke performs his signature move by dunking the ball without even jumping.

Fans on social media are already head-over-heels in love with him, although many continue to bombard him with one question: "How old are you, Abiodun?"

So far, his exact age still remains unknown with some media claiming he's 17 while others insist he's much older.

Either way, Adegoke has certainly got the attention of basketball fans thanks to his sheer size.

But it's NBA scouts he'll undoubtedly be hoping to impress at some point in the near future.
