| by Alex Groberman

When an NBA star on the come up like Washington Wizards point guard John Wall gives a 12-year-old his endorsement, folks would be wise to pay attention. An endorsement from Wall, however, is just the latest feather in the cap of North Carolina youngster Damon Harge who is taking the hoops world by storm despite the fact that he’s only 5-foot-4 and 120 pounds.

As per Yahoo! Sports:

"Despite his age, as highlighted by, Harge is competing at the high school level in North Carolina, and he's torching the opposition. A year after getting national attention for dominating any and all middle school comers -- he averaged 35 points as a fifth grader playing against student athletes three years older than himself -- Harge is now suiting up for Creedmor (N.C.) Christian Faith Center Academy, where he faces off against some of the top prep basketball programs in the county … as a sixth grader."
