I disagree. How many 7 foot centers do you see starting in Div. 1 BBall

these days? Or even in the NBA? It used to be 30-40 years ago, everyone wanted a big 7 footer like Ralph Sampson or Tree Rollins but not so over the last 10-20 years. The human body was not designed to carry 7 feet of humanity. With increase in height, one loses agility and athleticism and has to deal with more negative medical conditions.
I hope he stays at 6'-9".
