HS Prospects on the decline

Every year the McDonald's All-American Game puts together rosters of arguably the best HS prospects in the nation. Although they may be the best on the HS level it becomes a different story with some of them once they get to the collegiate level. A lot of the prospects on the Mickey D's roster do not pan out the way we think they should just becuase they made the roster.

What is the percentage of Mickey D prospects moving on to the NBA after college?

Which Mickey D prospect do you not seeing become successful on the collegiate level?

Khem Birch F/C 6-9 Notre Dame Prep, MA (Fitchburg, MA) Pittsburgh

Wayne Blackshear G/F 6-5 Morgan Park, IL (Chicago, IL) Louisville

Anthony Davis F/C 6-9 Perspectives Charter, IL (Chicago, IL) Kentucky

Branden Dawson G/F 6-5 Lew Wallace, IN (Gary, IN) Michigan State

Myck Kabongo G 6-1 Findlay Prep, NV (Henderson, NV) Texas

LeBryan Nash F 6-7 Lincoln, TX (Dallas, TX) Oklahoma State

Austin Rivers G 6-3 Winter Park, FL (Winter Park, FL) Duke

I look at Anthony Davis and

I look at Anthony Davis and can't help but see a Brandan Wright comparison. 190lbs PF is just not going to cut it, even if he adds 20lbs, it still makes him a 210lbs PF in the NBA.

I think LeBryan Nash and Austin Rivers will be monsters. 2 of my favorite prospects for next year

Also, the UK fan in me can't wait to see Gilchrist, Teague, Davis, and Wiltjer

I don't think Myck Kabongo will be the "next big thing". The game I watched him play against Dorian Finney-Smith showed his true self to me.

^^^

Both Wright and Davis has great skills for PFs. Doesn't even matter which is more skilled than the other at the same stage, because like Wrght, I don't think Davis will ever be strong enough to be an NBA PF. Perhaps he can develop his perimeter game and ball handling and be like Austin Daye and be a SF, but I just don't see it.

Well, the question was "Who

Well, the question was "Who do you not see succeeding on the collegiate level?"

Anthony Davis will succeed in college, the pros is another question.

Myck Kabongo is a very good

Myck Kabongo is a very good PG. As a matter of fact, I think hes better than Teague.
Kabongo is more of a Pass-First PG with a high basketball IQ who picks his time to score. The only thing that I see knocking him is his ability to finish around the basket and his jumpshot which really isnt that bad. He reminds me of Rajon Rondo.

So the one game you saw

So the one game you saw Kabongo play showed his true self?..the other games he has played against other top players and out played them doesn't how his true self?..How exactly does that work?

I think LeBryan Nash is going

I think LeBryan Nash is going to be one of those guys we wait on to show all hs talents. Probally a 2 year prospect, I see him struggling in his 1st year with Baylor. Sort of the same way Hamilton was inconsistant as a freshman with Texas.

He forces all his passes & he

He forces all his passes & he even passes up on wide open shots just to look for a pass from what I have seen.

The first time i saw Kabongo

The first time i saw Kabongo i was less than impressed...but i decided to watch a couple of more games in Vegas and then understood why he was ranked so high. Very good scorer but just as good at passing the ball

The reason i think Nash works out more than Hamilton is the fact that he isn't a jump shooter like Hamilton. If Nash isn't hitting the jumper he will drive or he can work in the post because he is strong as a ox. As a freshman if Hamilton's jumper wasnt falling he was of no use. Nash can rebound,defend,slash, and get garbage buckets. I tend to think players like that will play pretty well. I see him having a Ron Artest type freshman year or better. Also he's going to OK state not Baylor, the offense should run through him there

Plumlee is overrated just

Plumlee is overrated just like his brothers from what i have seen ( I've only watched him in two games though but he looked like a 2 year starter in a four year career on a top ranked team like Duke) I've seen at least 10 other players this year who should have his spot on the team. Maybe someone who has seen him play more can correct me but I'm just not convinced at how good people claim he is, reminds me of Ryan Kelly without the range
