Someone who recently saw Tree and Harney together told me it looked like Harney is now taller than Tree. Out of HS Harney was listed at 6-6 and Tree at 6-7. On the Zips roster, both are listed at 6-7. If Harney is now up to 6-8 or more, he would be even more of a problem for Zips opponents to defend. Has anyone here seen Harney recently? Does it look like he's still growing?

I heard he has a hi-top fade now.

That's the best scenario you can hope for. A guy with his ball skills, who keeps growing when in college. If it's true, that's great news.

Got confirmation from someone who saw Tree and Harney together that Harney now appears to be about an inch taller than Tree, and it's not all in the hair. :) Both were listed at 6-7 last season, so that would put Harney closer to 6-8, assuming that Tree hasn't also gained some height. Maybe more intriguing is an observer's report that Deji appears to have grown a couple of inches since last season, when he was listed at 6-3. That would put him more in the 6-5 area, catching up with his 6-9 wingspan. If he can live up in college to his HS reputation as a lockdown defender, a 6-5 Deji could gain more PT by virtue of being able to defend against the 1, 2 and 3 positions. Pure speculation on my part, but isn't that what the off-season is all about for hardcore fans?

Catching up ? If he grew two inches, I'd be surprised if his wingspan stayed the same :D

Maybe this thread should be retitled "Zips Still Growing?" Latest report from on campus is that Justice appears to have added an inch or two to his listed height from last season of 6-3. If he's in fact now closer to 6-5 like Walsh, it could make it a bit easier for him to carry over his high 3-point shooting percentage from HS to college.

I hope Harney is adding some moves to his half-court offensive game other than "plow into the lane." If not, there will simply be a 2" taller kid sitting on the Zips' bench for 28min/game. Fr. to Soph. is usually a big jump. My expectations are high for Harney in 2012-13.

Since this seems like one of those "practice" reports...is it possible that they lowered the rims at practice 1 inch, so that everybody seems like they grew? :ninja:

Now that's a silly idea. If they did that everyone would look an inch taller.
Here's a more practical explanation.
