2015 Nike Hoop Summit: International Practice: Day Four
April 9, 2015

Tai Wynyard had one of his best days of the week, crashing the offensive glass repeatedly with his thick frame and strong motor. He has gotten wiser about going straight up with the ball and not giving the World Team shot-blockers any opportunity to bother his shots inside the paint, which is important considering his lack of length and verticality. Wynyard perhaps isn't the prototypical athlete Kentucky usually recruits, but his toughness and work ethic should help him carve out a role among their sea of All-Americans as his career progresses.

2015 Nike Hoop Summit: International Measurements
April 6, 2015

Tai Wynyard
Height (w/ shoes): 6-10
Weight: 263
Wingspan: 6-10
Hand Width: 9 3/4
Hand Length: 9
Standing Reach: 8-10 1/2
Country: New Zealand

-Wynyard has room to tone his frame, but he is tremendously strong for a young big man. His wingspan isn't particularly impressive for a big man, but he has solid height for the center position. Having just turned 17, it will be interesting to see whether he grows in the coming years and how his already mature body progresses. Wynyard's body type can be compared to that of Mitch McGary (263 pounds at the Hoop Summit, 6-10 in shoes, 7-0 wingspan), even if the now Oklahoma City big man is slightly longer. For an inevitable Kentucky player comparison, he also has very similar dimensions to those of Josh Harrellson (6-8 without shoes, 6-11 wingspan, 8-8 standing reach).
