With two Buckeyes participating in NBA Draft Combine proceedings in Chicago over the next few days, the official measurements for E.J. Liddell and Malaki Branham are in.

Update: A source told Eleven Warriors that neither Liddell nor Branham will participate in five-on-five scrimmages at the combine on Thursday and Friday.

Per Jonathon Givony of ESPN and DraftExpress, Liddell measured in at 6-foot-7 in shoes with just shy of a 7-foot wingspan. Liddell also weighed in at 243 pounds with 12.2 percent body fat.

Liddell had the highest standing vertical leap of all players who were tested at the combine with a measure of 35.5 inches, and his 38-inch max vertical leap was eighth-best among all participants.

With a 3.23-second shuttle run, Liddell had the 36th-best time, and his 11.11-second lane agility drill ranked behind only 20 other potential draftees. In the three quarter sprint, Liddell ran a time of 3.26 seconds, which ranked 25th among those that were tested.

Branham measured in at 6-foot-5 and one-half inch in shoes with a 6-foot-10 wingspan, and weighed in a 194.8 pounds with 6.1 percent body fat.

Branham ranked 11th in the three quarter sprint with a time of 3.17 seconds, 34th in lane agility with an 11.38-second split and 17th in the shuttle run with a 3.09-second time. Branham's standing vertical leap was 29 inches, and his max vert was 35 – 23rd-best among all participants.
