Seventh-grader throws down thunder dunk on a fast break

Ladies and gentlemen, we need to preface the following video with this disclaimer: The man-child throwing down the thunder dunk you're about to see is only 11 years old.

That's right folks, that was an 11-year-old who just skied above defenders and threw down a powerful slam in that video. His name is Adrian Moore, and in the bizarre world of prepubescent athletic hype, the seventh grader has already been ranked as a top prospect in the Class of 2016 and is garnering collegiate attention from some prime-time college programs.

The attention comes with both his genetic pedigree -- his father is 6-foot-3 and his mother is 6-feet tall -- which has led to his growth to his current 6-foot-3 size and his father's connections in Little Rock. The elder Moore is a police officer in Little Rock and became acquainted with Scottie Pippen, who has since taken to mentoring the younger Moore despite his tender age.

As amazing as Adrian Moore's prodigious talent is, he was flashing some of the athleticism on display in the dunk you see above last year, when he dunked on a fast break at an AAU national tournament, as you can see below.

So, will Moore become the next Derrick Rose or -- perhaps more appropriately, given his expected final size of a lanky 6-foot-6 to 6-foot-8 -- Scottie Pippen? It's far too early to tell. Regardless of what his future holds, we can certainly rest easy knowing that he won't be afraid to attack the rim on a fast break.
