Under Armour Association Measurements Analysis

Under Armour Association Measurements Analysis
May 10, 2017, 01:46 am
For the first time, Under Armour has made the measurements and vertical jump testing information they've gathered at the first and second sessions of their grassroots league, the Association, available. One of the single largest additions to our already extensive database covering of the 17U, 16U, and 15U divisions, these measurements mark one of the earliest points we've ever gotten official numbers on a group of players that, if history is any indication, will ultimately include plenty of college standouts and a number of future NBA Draft picks.2018 Top Prospects
One of the most imposing physical specimens on the grassroots circuit this season, blossoming New Heights center prospect Moses Brown out of Archbishop Molloy (NY) measured exceptionally. Standing 7'0 in shoes with a huge 7'4 wingspan and 9'2.5 standing reach, and a 227-pound frame he's added some good weight to since last fall, Brown, at age 17, already compares favorably physically to the 2001 version of Tyson Chandler, who measured 7'0 ½ in shoes with a 7'3 wingspan, a 9'2 standing reach and 224-pound frame at the NBA Draft Combine, at a little over a year older at the same stage. His standing reach is identical, at the moment, to Andrew Bogut's when the former #1 overall pick was coming out of Utah and his hand length ranks among the top-15 marks in our database all-time.

A player we received measurements for over each of the last three years, IMG Academy (FL)'s Silvio De Sousa has actually leaned down a bit from last summer, tipping the scales at 242 pounds after weighing in at 256 pounds last fall. Standing 6'8 in shoes with a 6'10 wingspan. The Angola native has a uniquely mature frame for a high school prospect and shares some physical similarities with Julius Randle who measured 6'9 in shoes with a 7'0 wingspan at the 2014 NBA Draft Combine while weighing 250 pounds and posting the same 8'9.5 standing reach that De Sousa did at the first session of UAA. Throwing down almost five dunks per game for the Florida Vipers, De Sousa isn't overwhelmingly long, but is a highly explosive athlete inside.

Another young big man with a physically mature frame, Roselle Catholic (NJ)'s Nazreon Reid doesn't look like a 17 year old and has been a force for UAA power SportsU so far this spring. Standing 6'10 in shoes with a 250-some pound frame and a 7'1 wingspan, Reid's measurements line up fair well with those we have on him from last summer. His dimensions are similar to those of Blake Griffin who measured 6'10 in shoes with a 6'11.5 wingspan and a 248-pound frame at the 2009 NBA Draft Combine when he was coming out of Oklahoma.

A versatile, highly regarded talent who is still only scratching the surface of the player he can become, Westside (GA)'s Khavon Moore measured 6'8 in shoes with a 6'8.5 wingspan and 200-pound frame. Though his dimensions are identical to those recorded at the Elite 24 last fall, he's packed about ten pounds of muscle onto his frame since then. Moore lacks great length, but has terrific size for a wing at any level.

Helix (CA) power forward Miles Norris measured 6'10 in shoes with a 6'10 wingspan and a 194-pound frame. The athletic, lanky big man has massive feet and may not be done growing and could ultimately have similar dimensions to former North Carolina standout Brice Johnson who measured 6'10.5 in shoes with a 7'0.5 wingspan and a 209-pound frame as a college senior but 6'9.5 with a 6'11 wingspan and a 185-pound frame at the same stage as Norris between his junior and senior seasons of high school.

Among the most intriguing newcomers to the UAA circuit this season is Serbian standout Filip Petrusev who had a standout performance playing up at the U18 Spanish Clubs Championship with Vitoria and at the 2016 Eurocamp as part of the Next Generation showcase least summer before enrolling at Avon Old Farms (CT) this season. Standing 7'0 in shoes with a 7'0 wingspan and 225-pound frame, Petrusev has grown a bit from last summer. A gifted offensive player who can make shots with range and put the ball on the floor surprisingly well for his size while also possessing good defensive instincts, the Belgrade native has burst onto the recruiting scene with his strong play this spring. He figures to have similar dimensions to Frank Kaminsky who measured 7'1 in shoes with a 6'11 wingspan and 231-pound frame if he continues to grow, which isn't out of the question at this stage.

A tremendous athlete with a 7'1.25 wingspan and a 6'9, 208-pound frame, Northwood Temple (NC)'s Immanuel Bates has been one of the more productive players in the UAA early on early a number of national offers in the process. Possessing ideal dimensions for a power forward and the explosiveness to make the most of his tools as a finisher and shot blocker, Bates is a player worth keeping an eye on down the road.

Oldsmar Christian (FL) standout Elijah Weaver has flashed significant upside for Team Breakdown and measuring 6'5 in shoes with a 6'7.75 wingspan with a 195-pound frame, has intriguing size for the next level and beyond. Weaver is almost as big as Brandon Roy who measured 6'6.25 in shoes with a 6'8 wingspan and a 207 pound frame coming out of Washington in 2006, even if he does not possess the same savvy with the ball at this stage.

 2019 Prospects 
Among the most explosive athletes in the country, Harvard Westlake (CA)'s Cassius Stanley is an effortless leaper who continues to grow. Standing 6'5.5 in shoes with a 6'6 wingspan and 191-pound frame, Stanley is almost the same size as breakout NBA guard Gary Harris who stood 6'5 in shoes with a 6'6.75 wingspan and a 205-pound frame coming out of Michigan State after his sophomore season in 2014.

Another dynamic athlete who possesses unique intensity and versatility, Ranney School (NJ) star Scottie Lewis does a bit of everything on the floor and standing 6'5 with a 6'10.25 wingspan and a 178-pound frame, has excellent long-term physical potential for a shooting guard. Lewis's height and wingspan are nearly identical to Dwyane Wade and James Harden, though he doesn't have nearly the bulk of either player. Lewis hasn't gained much weight since last summer, and it remains to be seen how much he can bulk up. Even if he can't, his frame right now is a mirror impact of Jamal Crawford's when he was coming out of Michigan in 2000.

Lewis's high school and UAA teammate Bryan Antoine has grown significantly since last summer. Sprouting up almost 2 inches to 6'5.5 in shoes with a 6'6.25 wingspan and a still light 169-pound frame, Antoine is a dynamic offensive player who may always be on the wiry side, but could become even more intriguing if he continues to grow.

An exceptionally skilled forward out of Trinity Christian (NC), Joey Baker has been one of the most productive scorers in the UAA early on. Standing 6'8 in shoes with a 6'9 wingspan and 197-pound frame, Baker already has similar dimensions to UCLA's T.J. Leaf at the same age and just 16 years old at the moment, could wind up roughly the same size as Dario Saric who measured 6'10 with a 6'10 wingspan at the 2012 Nike Hoop Summit. A candidate to play either forward spot at the next level, Baker's skill level figures to give the coach at whatever school he commits to great freedom when putting together lineups.

A 6'9 forward with a 6'11 wingspan and 206-pound frame, St. Benedict's (NJ) standout Precious Achiuwa continues to grow into his body and develop as a player. His frame and skill set have come a long way since last summer.

Makhi Mitchell is a massive young big man at 6'9 with a 7'0.5 wingspan and a 257-pound frame that is reminiscent of Sean May's when he was coming out North Carolina. Standing 6'8.5 in shoes with a 7'1.25 wingspan and a 259-pound frame, May was 21 years old when he was measured at the 2005 NBA Pre-Draft Camp. Mitchell has rare strength for a 17 year old big man, and will need to be careful with his conditioning as he has the type of frame that can carry considerable weight common among offensive lineman.

Prolific scoring guard Josh Green out of Mountain Ridge (AZ) measured 6'5 in shoes with a 6'8.25 wingspan and a 192-pound frame. The 16 year old has similar size to a number of current pros including Denzel Valentine, Tony Allen, and Buddy Hield, though he's unsurprisingly quite a bit lighter at this stage of his career. It will be interesting to see if Green continues to grow as he's been tremendously productive on the UAA circuit early on.

2020 Prospects
The son of former NBA player Pace Mannion, who was listed at 6'7-190 pounds, Nico Mannion measured roughly the same marks as he did last summer at 6'1.5 in shoes with a 6'1.25 wingspan and a 165-pound frame. Given his father's size, it will be interesting to see how Mannion's frame matures in the coming years. He's already been productive playing with the Earl Watson Elite 16U team, but a growth spurt could take his game to a new level.

Standing 6'3 in shoes with a 6'6 wingspan and a 180-some pound frame, 14 year old guard Jaden Springer has been well ahead of his peers at the 15U level despite his youth. It will be interesting to see how his frame compares to that of his cousin, DeAndre Bembry who measured 6'5.75 in shoes with a 6'9.25 wingspan at the 2016 NBA Draft Combine at age 21, down the road.

A tremendously gifted young athlete, Jalen Suggs out of Minnehaha Academy (MN) measured 6'4 in shoes with a 6'4.5 wingspan and a 183-pound frame. Playing all the way up at the 17U level and producing impressively, Suggs' lack of length doesn't prevent him from rebounding or getting in the passing lanes at a terrific rate for a guard.

Micah Peavy has grown an inch and a half from last year at USA Basketball, standing 6'7 in shoes (up from 6'5) with a 181-pound frame. He may lack length, but his continued growth is a promising sign should he wind up having the size to compensate for it down the road.

Akeem Odusipe measured 6'8 with a 6'10 wingspan. A big time athlete and rebounder for B. Maze at the 15U level, Odusipe would grow into a very intriguing prospect if he already impressive frame continues to grow.
