Not too long ago, Jarnell Stokes was the highest rated basketball prospect in the state of Tennessee. The 6-foot-8, 270-pound forward from Memphis turned down offers from Connecticut and Florida to become what one website called a "once in a decade signee" for Tennessee.
So when Stokes posted a photo of his younger brother, college coaches immediately started salivating. Stokes shared this photo on his Instagram account this weekend, and it has been making its rounds on the internet. The image shows Stokes' younger brother, Isaiah, hunting down another football player. As you can see, there is quite a size disparity in the photo. That's because Isaiah, who is only in eighth grade, is already 6-foot-7 and 225 pounds.
Think about that for a second.
Isaiah Stokes is still in junior high, so he hasn't even begun to realize his potential on the football field or the basketball court. But thanks to an amazing combination of size and genetics, something tells us you'll be hearing his name down the road.
