Looks like they both may be a legit 6’8, if Scotty Thurman is indeed 6’6. In this picture Chaney is standing right beside Thurman and is clearly at least 2 inches taller than him, and Phillips is the exact same height as Chaney with his hair.
I think Chaney may be a little taller. Look at Phillips and Thurman, their legs are close, Chaney is standing at (what we call in the military) parade rest, meaning his legs are at least shoulder width apart (yes his arms aren’t behind his back so it is not actually parade rest, cause I know someone will try to be a smart alleck). He is probably at least an inch taller than the pic seems to indicate. Maybe he’s closer to 6’9
Also, some more Chaney and Phillips news… Otis Kirk just made a crystal ball prediction for Phillips to Arkansas. Kirk, is the Arkansas guy for 247, he usually doesn’t make crystal ball projections for recruits to Arkansas unless he’s heard something or has a good feeling.
Don’t know if you saw my comments on Dudley’s post about Phillips yesterday, but Phillips referred to WE (him as a Razorback) trying to get Chaney. Dudley said it wasn’t a misprint, he did indeed say it.
Him being compared to Bobby Portis (by CMA) has me excited. Having Chaney and Gafford down low has me excited, and with the length 6’3 - 6’7 on the perimeter, is a very long, and athletic team. When we go from having 6 ft as the smallest to 6’3 that to me is a plus. (For ex: we have a chance at PG 6’5, SG 6’6, SF 6’7, PF 6’8/6’9, C 6’11).
