Does anyone know his mile PR? (Sorry if I missed it being posted.) I agree that that would go a long way towards figuring out his real potential.
4:38 1500 in 2011 is on elite youth. Appears he did not compete in 2012 much, if any. He would have been, 13 ( Youth; 13/14). His Midget 12yo times were 438/934. The 934 if certified broke an old-ish national record (9:38/in 1998).
2012 leading midget times, for comparison) were 434/957.
This years Youth 1500/3000 leader has times everywhere.
He went 948/911/856 and 431/415/409 as a 12/13/14 year old, he appears to be quite good.
If this kid had a similar progression, he'd be in Billy Harper territory next summer, but having no times this year, its hard to say.
Wish him luck.
