UK basketball prospectus reveals player heights and weights

The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team released it preseason prospectus on Thursday and it includes the official team roster for 2017-18, complete with unofficial measurements for the Wildcats.

The heights and weights of the players — which, again, are unofficial — can be seen here:

A couple quick observations:

— Kevin Knox is a dangerous 6-9

— I thought P.J. Washington would be taller

— I find it hard to believe that Wenyen Gabriel has lost weight since last season (213 lbs)

Did I mention these are unofficial?

    If Quade Green is really 180lbs., I’ll eat my hat.

    Perhaps a penis reduction during the offseason was in tall order, Drew? That could maybe explain Wenyen’s weight loss.

    How about Jarred Vanderbilt at 6’9″ 214! I thought he was 6’7″ tops!

    I wonder if Vanderbilt and PJ Washington heights are mixed up or did Vanderbilt have growth spurt?

      I hope Vanderbilt’s height is correct. Having a 6’9″ forward with his skills….Wow! I also thought Washington was 6’8″, but with his bulk & on-court attitude, it won’t matter.

    I have no clue what the line up will actually look like. Hami running the pg and knox at the 2 with a mixture of wenyen vando pj and richards has to be the tallest lineup ever. Even taller than the towns team

    Brad Calipari is the only player on this year’s squad with tattoos.
