Thanks here are the results..


from Keeps Healthy.


Your Child's Genetic

Potential for height is:

6 feet 2.5 inches


http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/welco...ulate+Heig ht


Kid Predictor

Potential for height is:

6'8"

http://www.webmd.com/content/tools/1...kid_height.htm


Parent Center Height Predictor.

http://parentcenter.babycenter.com/c...questid=686795


Your boy will likely be 6 feet, 8 inches at age 18.


Young men often continue to grow a little past 18 until they reach 21, but their height at age 18 is very close to their final adult height. This prediction is a "best guess" but it's still just that -- a guess. Based on the formula we used* there is a 50 percent chance that your boy's full-grown height will be within 0.8 inches (above or below) of this prediction, and a 90 percent chance that it will be within 2.1 inches.

The fine print:
Parents' heights are a good predictor of a child's adult height, but heredity only accounts for about 70 percent of what goes into deciding how tall someone will be. The other 30 percent comes from environmental factors, like eating habits (poor nutrition can "stunt" a child's growth) and exercise patterns (a competitive gymnast may not grow to her full potential).

Sometimes a child will surprise everyone and turn out much taller or shorter than either parent. This calculator can't account for that possibility. It also won't work well for children who 1) are exceptionally tall, 2) are already taller than both their parents, or 3) have a condition that affects their height, such as growth hormone deficiency.




6'8 is the ADULT height of your child..

damn 6'8, just keep feeding your kid on vitamin tablets, make sure he doesn't go to school but go weight lifting and playing basketball 24/7, train him to be a PG and then he will be the next Tracy McGrady. Simple.

thanx! i feel my son has alot of potential, he needs to get more aggressive but he's got good ballhandling and he's a great shooter. i feel he's at the high school level w/ his shooting right now, he can hit the high school 3 easily. a guy i had working w/ him told me to play him w/ 6th graders when he was in 3rd grade but i decided to only put him one grade ahead. he'll be playing 5th grade ball this year instead of 4th.

how do you think a kid would react if you home schooled him from k-12, made him weight train/cardio/playball for workout schedule. If he was tall enough he should have a very good chance of making the nba.

I'm talking playing ball 12 hours a day for 18 years. That would be sick for us, if our parents did that. But everyone is different so I don't know how the kid would react to that.

yeah, he's a great 3pt shooter for his age. thanx for your comments and i especially like the "keeping the confidence". that will take a kid a long way if a parent is always in their corner.

That's sweet.

My brother plays at VCU.

Virginia Commenwealth was the team that upsetted Duke first round for those who don't know. He's playing alongside Eric Maynor and 6 Florida Freshman this year.

He committed at UMASS but then decomitted.
