The latest roster in the OP has been updated to include new height & weight stats for the 4 incoming freshmen scholarship players.

Gradey Dick 6-8/205 (+1/+10)
MJ Rice 6-5/220 (0/+20)
Ernest Udeh, Jr 6-11/240 (+1/+8 )
Zuby Eijofor 6-9/235 (+1/+15)

Caveats

It is my understanding that KANSAS measures height with the shoes on, so depending on the source for the initial #s, that could account for the delta in reported height -- or they could have grown an inch in the interim. :)

Given the training regimen the players have been in since arriving in early June, I expect the weight gain is all muscle.
