4-Year-Old Mormon Showcases Hoops Skills for Steve Harvey, Ellen DeGeneres


Titus Ashby, a four-year-old from Kansas, recently impressed some big names in television with his incredible basketball shooting skills.

Steve Harvey, host of “Little Big Shots,” recently invited Ashby onto his show to shoot some hoops. The boy, who has already previously appeared multiple times on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” show, continued to shock the audience with his incredible skills.

The Ashby family, who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, have been filming the youngster’s trick shots since he was just 18 months old. Videos on YouTube show Ashby shooting a basketball into a children’s hoop from many different heights and distances, rarely missing a basket. Harvey tested the boy’s skills, raising Ashby up on a lift in the studio to take a few shots. Watch the video, shared above, to see how the Ashby did.

Talk show host Ellen Degeneres, a producer of “Little Big Shots,” also shared a clip of Ashby on her daily talk show. Watch the clip from “The Ellen Show,” shared below.
