Is it too early to start discussing the high school basketball class of 2018? Well, yeah, if you think about it the whole recruitment culture is kinda toxic and, really, what's the point in HOLY COW THAT'S A GIANT EIGHTH GRADER!

Meet Connor Vanover. He's 7-foot-1 and his highlight reel, posted below, is currently making its way around the sports blogosphere. He can dunk. He can shoot. He can block. He can do it all.
