One of the tallest basketball players in recent memory, Tacko Fall, has committed to Central Florida.
At 7-foot-5, Fall played for Each 1 Teach 1 Elite on the EYBL Circuit, averaging 2.9 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.
Fall is the fourth player to commit to the Knights, along with Chad Brown, Chance McSpadden and Tank Efianayi.
Fall chose UCF over Florida, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Stanford, Purdue, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest.
Each 1 Teach 1 Elite coach Steven Reece previously told SNY.tv that he thinks Fall has a very bright future.
“Tacko’s upside is through the roof,” he said. “He’s a kid that continues to work on his game every day and wants to be the best.”
