Most Overrated Players at Nike:
1. Vernon Macklin Class of 2006 power forward out of Portsmouth, Va. I've seen him as high as top five, he isn't a top fifty player in my opinion.
2. Nic Wise Class of 2006 point guard out of Fresno, Texas is committed to Arizona, didn't impress.
3. Keith Brumbaugh Class of 2005 combo forward from Deland, Fla. Some have him as a top twenty player, not me, he is soft, no handle and a tweener(6-foot-8, 200-pounds).
4. Jon Brockman Class of 2005 power forward. The Snohomish, Wash. power forward has offers from UCLA and Washington, a big rep, but didn't do anything for me.
5. Kevin Long Class of 2007 top five prospect on many lists. The 6-foot-8, 240-pounder from Lake Oswego, Ore. isn't as good Kyle Singler and not even close to being as good as Chicago Simeon sophomore Derrick Rose.
6. C.J. Miles Class of 2005 small forward Dallas, Texas. At least at this event, the Dallas Skyline forward showed me nothing that would support his ranking (Top 15-30 range nationally).
