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.
