How tall is Wilton Speight? I was under the impression that Harris was 6'4", and Campbell was 6'5", but they both look to be the same height and each one looks at least 3 inches shorter than Speight.
He's reported at 6'6 errwhere
Heights are usually exaggerated, so I'd go Harris at 6'3" Cole at 6'4" and Speight at 6'6". Camera angle might have had something to do with it too.
I seem to remember Campbell measuring in near 6'3 at the Under Armour Underclassmen Combine
Well I thought Speight was 6'6" Cole is listed at 6'5" That'd make Ferns 6'3" Harris 6'3" and Campbell 6'4". Hard to tell with how they are standing.
Thats news to me...I thought you either graduate high school in 4 years, or it takes you 5+ because you suck at school??
Is it possible he goes to a prep school, like you see some basketball players do?
Not sure, and not sure of how that all works out for a high school kids eligibility
Yeah, if you go to a prep school you can usually reclassify.
Collegiate in Richmond is a prep school
So can he take 6 years to graduate like Van Wilder?
You still have to complete all of your core classes in the first 4 years IIRC and the 5th year is a postgraduate year, like Mitch McGary and a bunch of other b-ball prospects use all the time.
Awesome, so as a potential rs freshman, he would actually be a junior??
Collegiate is a private school but does not have post grad. Wilton repeated his junior year after breaking his collarbone diving fpor the pylon in the 2nd or 3rd game. He is a legit 6'6 and a good student. This kid is underrated and you guys will see how much so at The Opening this spring and in the Elite 11 camps. Big kid with a strong, underrated arm. Collegiate plays in the same league with Hackenburg and I would rather have Wilton.
Thanks for stopping by.
I like you.
IIRC, McGary repeated the 11th grade because his parents thought he needed the extra year to mature.
Sweet. Thanks for the info!
Just curious, how does a sports injury cause someone to repeat a year of school? Something like the Shane Morris situation I could understand because mono can negatively affect school work as well, but you phrased that like it was a common sense thing.
Why do you care?
Depending on the injury, I could see it affecting schoolwork. At the very least, a broken collarbone would make it difficult if not impossible to write/type.
Thanks for your super useful contribution Sparty
Unless a post was deleted, all I see is an honest question. Do you think you'd miss a year of school over a broken collarbone?
I'm not sure what Speights situation is but it is becoming increasingly popular in some areas for athletes to do high school in 5 years so they can develop more. If I'm not mistaken "Johnny Football" did the same thing.
Definitey my favorite pic. Man, landing Harris this year and Campbell next would be AWEsome
