They say he's still 15, but I think he might be older.
But he definitely plays with US BBaller swagger

Virginia sophomore point guard
from China may be the next Jeremy Lin

By Cameron Smith
Tue, Feb 21, 2012

There may be a simmering diplomatic battle between China and Taiwan in trying to claim the allegiance and origin of budding Knicks star Jeremy Lin, but there's no debate about where the next Asian guard to crack the basketball scene hails from: He is Chinese, and he is a spectacular, under-the-radar prospect tearing up the mid-Atlantic prep hoops scene. And, just like Lin, this budding star is getting interest from Harvard among other top college hoops programs.

Chris Tang is only a sophomore at Newport News (Va.) Hampton Roads Academy, but he is already one of the traditionally powerful prep program's most promising prospects. At 6-foot-2, Tang can man either guard position, but spends almost all his time for Hampton Roads as the team's point guard. Tang was an all-conference selection as a freshman and has already had performances in which he scored 41 and 42 points … as a 15-year-old high school sophomore.

That's just where the comparisons to Lin begin, and there are plenty of reasons for them, too. As you can see in the highlight reel above, Tang has much of the same exceptional court vision of Lin. He is equally adept at cutting into the lane, taking the game to opposing defenses with aplomb.

What Tang may have as an advantage over Lin is his sheer athleticism. While Lin is an impressive athlete, Tang definitely has more vertical ability and a particularly disproportionate amount of agility and speed when compared with other high school sophomores.

He also has a serious shot that should make him a strong prospect for his versatility in running the point or shooting from the perimeter.

While Lin slipped almost completely below the radar, it seems exceedingly unlikely that a similar fate will befall Tang, who has been living in Virginia with a foster family since arriving in the U.S. as an eighth-grader and is reportedly completely comfortable with life as an American teen.

The sophomore -- who is currently averaging more than 20 points per game -- also stars for the powerhouse Boo Williams AAU program on the summer circuit, where he has already caught the eye of recruiters from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland and Davidson, among other schools. A strong academic candidate, Tang has also reportedly piqued the interest of Lin's alma mater Harvard.

It's hard to tell whether Tang's development will continue apace, or whether he can reach anywhere near the heights that Lin is now soaring toward. Still, the fact that he's beginning from a higher platform than Lin himself makes him a heck of a candidate to be the next Asian guard to crash the major American basketball scene.

one thing that I like about this clip is that I can see someone that is playing against their own size. And not a man playing with boys. Like so many of the clips out there.

Chris Tang led BWSL in scoring with 15 points on an array of moves to the basket. The Hampton Roads Academy product

elevated his play and has gotten better since his debut with the team last weekend in the Mid-Atlantic Regional. On one drive to the basket he looked off a defender before splitting two others converting a layup. Then, Tang threw down a dunk in transition awakening the crowd 30 minutes prior to midnight.

“Chris Tang, wow,” said Williams. “One of the most athletic guys I’ve been around in the past 20 years. He’s up there with one of the most athletic players of today.


Quote:
Again, Tang led the way in scoring with 19 points pouring in 12 in the second half to help seal the win. Keon Buchannan

and Jimmy Pope each scored 11 points and Ferguson added nine points and eight rebounds. Marcellus Purvis, Pope and

Ferguson each had five rebounds in the second half alone.

Some Boo Williams 15 and under squad game vid
Chris Tang in black and wearing no. 5. Not much action shown from him, 2 misses from 3 point range, a turnover and then hit a jumper off a drive.

Would like to see how he fares the rest of the high school season (if not over). Otherwise, Harvard is drafting this fellow

He is a good hs player, but his dribbles are way to high, he is often the biggest guy on court(i need to see him play against more athletic competition) so I don't think he relaly has many of the traits and instincts that lin has

They say he has good vision, but I haven't seen evidence of that yet
