Can't find anything to confirm. Wikipedia says he had 10 kids (6 from 1st marriage and 4 from 2nd), but other places say he had 5. None show the name John Bol but also none list all 10 names.

7’ kid with the last name of “Bol”….be a hell of a coincidence if it wasn’t.

well he is only 15....gotta give him time.

Yes he is.  He also lives with a family that is big on all things “state of Indiana basketball” i coached this person while he was at SB Riley back in the mid 90’s. He now lives in the St. Louis area, and is also a season ticket holder to ND football. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwi7iJH1nv3zAhXbbc0KHV8jDWIQFnoECAsQAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FMarcus_Wilson_(basketball)&usg=AOvVaw36ymbvMJBwYaMN2hCme3B5  His dad(Marcus’s dad that is, and who was also a coach at SB Riley)used to travel to IU basketball games with me, and was a huge Bobby Knight fan. He was that way with his son when it came to coaching him with strong discipline…hence why he probably was 91% free throw shooter.  I have no idea how this Bol kid will develop, but he has an excellent mentor in his everyday life now.

Thanks for sharing.  I love hearing back stories from our posters. Glad to hear that this young man has someone in his life to look up to. I also bet he has a great IU/ND reversible jacket like many of us on here do.

Great info.  Sounds like IU may have an “in” with Bol because of his guardian’s state of Indiana background.  Doesn’t mean we get him but you’d think that Woodson and company should get their chances.

Wouldn’t be ticked to use 13th scholarship on a 7’2 project. 🤷‍♂️

I would think it would be difficult for someone 7'2 to look UP to anyone but there are always the yao ming's of the world.
