In case you guys haven't already seen, this guy has good video coverage of this years Easter bowl. He is uploading them in three weekly installments so the final video is not yet available. It should be ready by this weekend I think.

How tall is he?

Strangely, a lot of our very best juniors seem short compared to the rest of the world. Kozlov, wiersholm, mcdonald, rubin all seem pretty short. Even Fratangelo doesn't look that big or tall for his age. From pictures I've seen of Spencer Papa he seems like he's got a pretty good athletic build for 17. Not skinny and short like the rest of them.

I don't really have a number. I just went with the observation of him standing next to Marcus Tennis (host) and comparing that with other interviewees. He just doesn't look that tall.

I don't think it is strange that our juniors are shorter than those from other countries because most of the athletic/tall kids are usually recruited by other sports (football, basketball, baseball, etc.).

Papa does seem to have a good build for a 16 yrs old (doesn't turn 17 until October). Halebian, Kwiatkowski, Donaldson, Escobedo, Corinteli, and Mmoh are also tall (they all seem to have similar gamestyle as well). I think there is a correlation between height and gamestyle. Tall players tend to be ballbasher while short players are forced to play smarter (through variety, court-positioning, point construction etc.) b/c of their lack of power (Kozlov and Wiersholm are good examples).

Height Guesstimate

For fun, cracking the height mystery :

Code:
Age                 Name

17 (08 Jun 1994)    Halebian 6'-3" +
16 (09 Jul 1995)    Corinteli 6'-3" (twitter)
17 (13 Feb 1995)    Kwiatkowski 6'-1" to 6'-2" (taller than Nicholas Massu who is 6'-0" see 1st attachment)
15 (04 Jul 1996)    Escobedo 6'-0" to 6'-1 1/2" (was said to be 5'-11" about a year ago)
15 (09 Oct 1996)    Donaldson 6'-0" to 6'-2" (seems slightly taller than Escobedo, see 3rd attachment)
14 (10 Jan 1998)    Mmoh 6'-0" to 6'-2" (see 3rd attachment)
16 (22 Oct 1995)    Papa 5'-11" to 6'-1" (shorter than Kwiatkowski, see 2nd attachment)
17 (03 Oct 1994)    Connor Farren 5'-11" (listed on ITF earlier this year)
14 (20 Jan 1998)    Tiafoe 5'-8 1/2" to 5'-10" (see 3rd attachment)
14 (26 Jan 1998)    Blumberg 5'-8" to 5'-10" (see 3rd attachment)
16 (21 Feb 1996)    Rubin 5'-8" to 5'-9" (looks at least 2" shorter than Farren, from a G1 final earlier this year)
17 (16 Apr 1995)    McDonald 5'-8" to 5'-9" (just a pure guess)
15 (27 Mar 1997)    Wiersholm 5'-7 to 5'-7 1/2" (seems slightly taller than Kozlov from their Orange Bowl pic)
14 (01 Feb 1998)    Kozlov 5'-7" (article)
Kozlov, Wiersholm, Rubin, McDonald . From the look of it, Mmoh might end up taller than everyone (has that basketball player physique).
