ADRIEN Porras could one day follow in the footsteps of Victor Wembanyama.
The center at Sequoia Pathfinder Academy in Arizona already looks like an NBA player with his six-foot-10 frame at the age of 14.

The NBA’s future arguably never looked brighter.
Unbelievably talented basketball prospects are lining up to enter the league while superstars such as Luka Doncic, Nikola Jokic, and Giannis Antetokounmpo are still in their prime.
Porras is the most recent talent to appear on the radar after his highlight reel resurfaced on social media earlier this week.
The young center, who’s almost seven-foot tall already, was seen towering among his peers in a game for Sequoia.
Understandably, he had no problems swatting away shots of his rivals and dunking over them with ease.
Porras also showed off some good balance and footwork, scoring a couple of buckets with a crafty spin move.
And he put in the effort on the defensive end, chasing down an opponent and knocking the ball out of his hand to collect a steal.
Seeing Porras in action, basketball fans saw some great potential.
One tweeted: “Nah son this is wild!”
Another one wrote: “The cheat code is compete against players half your size.”
A third said: “American Wemby come to your homecourt and kiss your A**.”
And one added: “BRUHHHHH WHAT?!?!?!?!??!”
Only last month, Real Madrid prodigy Mahamadou Landoure put the basketball world on notice, scoring 56 points and 33 rebounds in the Endesa Mini Cup title in Spain.
Meanwhile, more and more stories suggest Wembanyama will be the league-altering player countless NBA analysts consider him to be.
“His first game with the U15, I put him in, and on his very first play, he ran corner to corner, he got the ball on the move, stopped on a dime in front of the three-point line, and shot it,” Bryan George, the Metropolitans 92 star’s former coach, said.
“I was like, Is he crazy? What the hell is he doing? And then the ball went in—a big swish. Everybody in the gym was smiling. You can tell people were thinking, Who is that guy? That monster?”
