You responded to this with a picture and a ruler and pointing out that you believe the hair is fooling him and noting a slight lean.

There is a certain unstated quality there that implies you are not in agreement. So, no, you didn't explicitly say that ON was taller, and, in fairness, I never explicitly stated that you did. But it seems like your reply and photographic evidence was intended to be proof of something.
It was me responding to OP saying he’s taller than Nkahmoua, which I disagree with, I think they are pretty much both the exact same height which is why I posted the straight line picture. And then shared that Nkahmoua was listed at 6’8” by Finland in the FIBA tournament this year.

Avoiding the height debate… Nothing much to report on this recruitment. Prior to the last round of visits, he was in heavy communication with coaches. He’s been quiet, but apparently asked to be left alone while deciding. His dad is religious and is very trusting of Barnes. I still hope that plays here, but there are some peripheral parties involved and that is never good. Prior to the last US trip, he had said he would announce next week. Not sure if that remains true. Most of what I’m saying here is reading tea leaves. There isn’t much on the hard data front.
Would assume he still announces next week, recent article said decision coming soon and with no OV’s left I wouldn’t think there’s much reason to wait.

I think he is still clearly taller than ON, even if only slightly. Even if we conceded that they are the same height, someone's height is incorrect. I don't know how anyone looks at that and comes away with the opinion that ON is the taller player, even with the slight lean.
My point in bold.

So you’re saying Awaka is 6’10”+? Sorry if it bothers you that I very strongly disagree with that take.
I didn’t say 6’10” plus. He’s 6’9” plus unless you use your logic. This post is another example. More than likely 6’9” plus half an inch. You can’t even “look at the film” and admit it. There you go again, BTO.

You said 2” taller than his listed height, he’s listed at 6’8”, so I took that to mean you’re saying he’s at least 6’10”, and to that I disagreed. If you think he’s that tall that’s fine, it’s wrong, but that’s fine. I suppose Aidoo is 7’1” and Plav is about 7’4” 🤷🏻‍♂️

Rob Lewis & Grant Ramey both saying they don’t see him ending up here 😞
I’m assuming Florida? Very strange why he wouldn’t want to go here. Unless he thought our post room was too crowded but I don’t see how he would have thought that. Maybe he wanted to start right way which he wouldn’t here

No school would surprise me, don’t know that any school feels great or is trending.

Looks similar in height to JJJ in recent photo
