How Tall is Devo?

I’ve seen height measurements on him anywhere from 6’2" to 6’4". (And please, no remarks about whether measured wearing sneakers or not, lol.)

His official height on the roster is 6-4.

I also wonder how tall JWill really is. Sometimes he looks much shorter than 6-10. And it is really hard to tell with his high top hairdo,

Times I was around him in spring and summer ball, he was about 6-4.

I just automatically assume that every player is about 1 1/2 inches shorter than their listed height. I wish that wingspan was the go to metric for basketball players. Far more relevant, and does not matter if the player is wearing shoes when measured.

I think standing reach is the relevant metric. If you have a 6-8 wingspan but you’re only 5-10, you’re still short and that wingspan is not going to help you block shots or get rebounds very much. I think I saw that CV’s standing reach is close to 10 feet.

If you are 5-10 with a 6-8 wingspan you are going to be famous for something.

And, wingspan is going to help you a lot. Separation matters.

My guess from standing next to Devo is that he is now closer to 6-4 than 6-1.

He has certainly grown taller since high school.
