Yo T..I might look like Webster but I play like Jordan..

Get to know Jaylin Fleming, a 10 year old phenom who is only in 5th Grade. Jaylin attends Beasley Academic Center in Chicago and is regarded by some as the most talented 5th grader ever.. “I’ve never actually seen a kid like this,” Knicks head athletic trainer Roger Hinds said. “As far as his age, he’s the best that I’ve seen,” said Refiloe Lethunya, a former Division I player, coach and NBA scout. But the little man already is saying the right things about his skills. “I’m a humble kid who’s trying to achieve a goal.” Jaylin says. “It’s crazy,” St. Joseph High School coach Gene Pingatore said. “The fact that Jaylin’s getting all this publicity so early means that the sharks are out there, whether it’s colleges trying to set this kid up for future recruitment or agents. “The good thing is that he has a family that’s going to protect him. But think about the kids who don’t have a solid family background. They’re susceptible to a lot of stuff — offers, money under the table, you can’t imagine the stuff that goes on.” Our culture is obsessed with youth, and the phenoms seem to get younger and younger..This kid looks crazy good..To see some video of Jaylin take the jump. -TO
