Seems like a lot of players

I think that quite a few might not actually be playing, at least the HS guys. They list Andre Drummond on the site as "Unable to attend due to prior commitment", and they say the same thing about Kasey Hill, Kuran Iverson and Tommie Hamilton. Stephen Zimmerman I think is a 2015 who is playing on the 2013's, but I do not know if any other underclassmen below 2013 are expected to compete. They have non of the international rosters up either, they have given a pretty bad indication of who is actually going to be showing up.

Also, I know DaJuan Coleman is supposedly going to be at the Nike Global Challenge. Otherwise, it seems pretty legit, but I am really surprised they do not have more clear information. I would like to know who is ACTUALLY going to be there, because I think the rosters they list are slightly misleading as of right now.

My mistake about DaJuan Coleman

As of today he was replaced on the USA East team by Chris Obepka and is apparently confirmed to be a participant of Adidas Nations. Nonetheless, does this not seem sort of overwhelming having this many players on a roster? Yes, it is a lot of talent, but I think it is fairly obvious that the 2012 guys will impose there will, especially seeing that the top 3 in the class of 2013 are going to be in Hillsboro.

Really anxious to see who actually shows up, and I really wish Adidas would do a better updating of their rosters on the website. I have little to no clue about who is playing on the international teams. Last year, Cezar Guerrero really killed it in the tournament, and it would be great to see the reps from Australia, China and Africa. Also, it was my mistake saying there were no 2014's, as Trey Lyles and Cliff Alexander both are reps of that class. If it is possible, could we get a report of anyone missing from the initial roster tomorrow? Maybe I am just being paranoid, but I feel like some of the players listed are not going to be there, unless Adidas Nations is just doing a really poor job of keeping everything updated.
