Recently turning age 20 on March 16, he’s a bit older than other freshman prospects projected for the 2014 NBA draft.  He has NBA level size right now, standing at a full 7′ with a 7’5″ wingspan.  While standing reach numbers have not been released, those numbers relate closely to Anthony Davis, listed at 6’9.5″ with a 7’5.5″ wingspan from Chicago Pre-Draft camp several years ago.  Both players have tremendous length and it shows at both ends.  Davis came out lighter at 222lbs., compared to Embiid’s 240lbs.
