Burlison picks Golden Dozen

FOXSports.com's Frank Burlison has unveiled his "Golden Dozen" -- the top 12 players in the nation regardless of class.

Both committed Tar Heels, Raymond Felton and Rashad McCants, made the list.

While there were the obvious picks (Felton, Amare Stoudemire, Shavlik Randolph, Carmelo Anthony) and the top notch underclassmen (LeBron James, Kendrick Perkins, Sebastian Telfair), there were some surprises.

Daniel Horton and Michael Thompson? Both are certainly Top 25 players in the Class of 2002, but their inclusion in this listing was surprising. But that's what makes such lists and rankings interesting -- they're opinions.

Tar Heel target Jason Fraser was on the list and Lenny Cooke would have been, but wasn't included because he won't be playing this year.
