7’5 Tacko “Taco” Fall Is The Tallest High School Player
If Fall can play Havoc defense and is recruited to VCU, he would be the tallest Ram in the history of the program. The title currently belongs to 7’2″ Konstantin Pepeliaev. Pepeliaev was a Ram from 1990-93, according to VCU Assistant AD for Athletic Communications Scott Day.This 7-foot-5 high school junior is taller than every NBA player and already a monster on the court. He is still learning how to play the game and therefore has not been highly recruited. In fact, he is not listed among the top center prospects on ESPN’s high school basketball rankings.
