Filipino basketball prospect Kai Sotto has grown an inch taller.

The 17-year-old former Ateneo high school star is currently honing his skills abroad to fuel his NBA dreams.

According to an Instagram post by EWP in Atlanta, the basketball prodigy is now officially listed as 7 feet 2 inches. 

He is now taller than former NBA star Shaquille O' Neal (7'1"), and he may still grow taller in the next few years. 

The son of former PBA player Earvin Sotto is the UAAP Season 80 Juniors Basketball Finals MVP. 

He bannered the Gilas Pilipinas Youth in the 2019 FIBA Under-19 Basketball World Cup, where he ended up as the tournament's top blocker with 3.1 swats per game.
