National Players at Nike/ABCD

Here's a look at who were the best prospects in the senior class and underclass nationally at Nike and ABCD...

We feel that you need to rank players by their potential – not by how they did at one, single camp or tournament.  Of course, ranking the players at ABCD and NIKE is based on one performance at a camp, but, with these rankings, we're projecting by that performance what kind of college player they could be.  So, one player might have performed better than another but doesn't rank higher.  For instance, Kris Humphries is ranked #7 and played better overall than Shagari Alleyne. But Alleyne is 7-3 and is continuing to improve, so he gets a higher ranking.


So here are the top 25 rising senior prospects and the top 25 underclassmen who participated in the Nike and ABCD camps. West coast players are in bold.
