Thon Maker doesn’t fall into the majority when it comes to young big men. You know, those kid’s that grow into their body so quickly that they don’t know how to deal with those lengthy limbs and coordination. Apparently, the 6-11 rising eighth grader (seriously, he’s that tall and that young) recently showed up at the John Lucas International Middle School Combine in Houston and proved that he’s got a pretty good feel for handling his lengthy frame. Just 14 years old, Maker comes from Australia and showed up a bunch of his pint-sized classmates in more ways than blocked shots.
