I think for male skater, Yuzuru's body type is idea. who has tight core and long legs and arms (with sufficient muscle on his thigh and butt not like twigs). which will help him spring high and rotate fast. also, long legs and arms and good flexibility will help with a better presence on ice and prevent injury. Also, he is not too tall like Evan, So his center of gravity is low enough to keep him balanced.

I also think neck is very important in both male and female skaters' body built. A long neck is preferred. e.g. Yuna, Javi, Patrick, Yuzuru etc.
Oh perhaps, the only drawback of Yuzuru's body type is his shoulders, For a male skater broad shoulders is preferred which will help with much better carriage. This is actually true for female skater too.
