Learn the name Seventh Woods because you will be hearing a lot of it over the next few years.

The freshman basketball player from Hammond High School in South Carolina torched his competition to the tune of 19.3 points, 4.3 assists and 2.3 steals per game (via Max Preps). Oh, and he is only 14 years old.

In his latest highlight video created by Hoopmixtape (via YouTube), Woods is able to showcase his incredible athleticism, as well as his skill as a shooter and a passer:

These huge dunks and incredible ball-handling abilities would be impressive to watch for any high school or even college player across the country. Just imagine how good this player will be by the time he is a senior.

Unsurprisingly, this video quickly became a national story and plenty of people are talking about it. The video itself has over three million views, and that is certain to continue to grow.

Still, the buzz surrounding this young player has reached incredible levels.

MSN Now showed the video and called him "the next LeBron James." Not only do they have very different styles of play, but also comparing a 14-year-old kid to the best basketball player in the world is quite premature.

However, there were plenty of other interesting statements that were made on Twitter regarding Woods.

Jason Jordan of USA Today did not need to say much to describe the youngster:

Of course, that was nothing compared to what this fan says about the guard:

The hype itself surrounding Woods has already reached incredible levels:

Then again, sometimes his insane athleticism gets him into trouble, according to Brian Snow of Fox Sports:

The most notable part of this entire thing is still his ridiculously young age. Even Phoenix Suns point guard Kendall Marshall was impressed:

Jeff Ermann of Inside Maryland Sports also focused on the player's youth:

Ian Kenyon of Bleacher Report posted the most incredible statistic regarding the South Carolina native:

Woods will represent the United States at the FIBA Americas Under-16 Championship that will take place in Uruguay this summer. Between this event and the next three years of his high school career, there will be plenty to prove.

However, he is ready to take over high school basketball, as he is already one of the top players in the country.
