University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Here are your pre-combine measurements

The measurements are in from Chicago and we have three of the Kentucky participants — Skal Labissiere, Tyler Ulis and Marcus Lee — listed for you below. Jamal Murray skipped this stage of the process, as did Ben Simmons.

Name Height w/o Shoes Height w/shoes Weight Wingspan Reach Body Fat Hand Length Hand Width
Skal Labissiere 6′ 10.5″ 6′ 11.75″ 216 7′ 2.5″ 8′ 9.5″ 5.7 8.75 9
Tyler Ulis 5′ 8.75″ 5′ 10″ 149 6′ 2″ 7′ 4.5″ 5.2 7.50 7.50
Marcus Lee 6′ 9” 6′ 10.25″ 211 7′ 3″ 8′ 11.5″ 5.4 9 9

A few things to note…

— Tyler Ulis isn’t the shortest player in Chicago. Oakland’s Kay Felder took that award, measuring half an inch shorter than Ulis.

— Ulis and Melo Trimble share the smallest wingspan crown. That’s not a good thing for Trimble, who is over four inches taller than Ulis.

— Skal Labissiere’s wingspan should be a little longer. He is the fourth tallest player but has the 13th longest wingspan.

— Kyle Wiltjer had the highest body fat percentage at 15.3, well above Diamond Stone’s 12.9 and Caleb Swanigan’s 12.6. Not a good look for Kyle.

    How is hand length and width measured? Something seems off about them.

      I’d guess thumb to tip of pinky, and base of wrist to tip of middle finger.

    Congratulations Mr. Wiltjer, you are the fattest kid at camp!

      I thought kyle looked fatter this year than he did at uk. Looks like he put on the wrong kind of weight, and when quickness is already any issue, that’s not a good thing.
