*He wont get as big as he would have by getting him neutered young
True and False. Generally dogs neutered young become a little taller but less "masculine" looking, so less size through the chest and shoulders, maybe a little narrower in the head

*He will not be as protective
False. Definitely false

*He will gain lots of weight
False, unless you over-feed and under-exercise

*He wont mature properly
See above. Mentally and emotionally he'll mature just fine, but he may not look quite as "male."

Personally, I neutered Rocky at nine months and wish I would have waited until he was a year and a half or so.
