At just 16-years-old Brandon Marshall may be the tallest teenager in the world. Hailing from the U.K., he stands at a whopping seven-feet, four-inches and doctors say he could still be growing. Good news is he doesn’t put the height to waste. He’s just been picked up by the Welsh national basketball team.
But get this - Marshall wasn’t always so tall. “I was a normal size up until the age of nine,” says Marshall. “I then had a big growth spurt. I was about six-foot when I was about 13 and I started to grow a lot more by then.”
His biggest obstacles? Shoes and a large enough bed. He wears a size 17 shoe and his mom, Lynne Quelch has just ordered him a custom bed.
