High school basketball star is actually 29-year-old from South Sudan

A budding high school basketball star is actually a 29-year-old refugee from South Sudan, according to Canadian authorities.

On Thursday, Canadian border services suggested that Jonathan Nicola misrepresented material facts on his application for a study permit to Canada, submitting an application with a date of birth of Nov. 25, 1998 - which would make him 17.

Since arriving in Canada six months ago, Nicola attended Catholic Central High School in Windsor, Ontario, as a grade 11 student.

At six-foot-nine, 200-pounds, Nicola quickly became the star player on the senior boys basketball team.
