Ketaan Wyatt is a 3rd-grader. Ketaan Wyatt is also straight baller.

The Hoop Doctors have the details on just about the best 8-year-old basketball player you've ever seen.


Ketaan is a rising 3rd grader for Martin Luther King Academy in Toledo, and is so much better than his own age group that he regularly plays against opponents that are 4-5 years his senior. The former Toledo HS ball boy lists his favorite players as Allen Iverson, Lebron James, and Brandon Jennings. Wyatt is rated as one of the top 3rd grade players in the country, let alone Ohio, by the site MiddleSchoolElite.com. He has impressed so much at an early age that Ketaan has even been given complimentary invites to Ohio State University and the University of Tennessee’s basketball camps.
