    nike skills academy

    Letters From Camp: Emptying the notebook - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN

    would've been cool if chris allen or royce white attended. any particular reason no cyclones have been at these the past few years? we're a nike school, right?

    (and yes I get we haven't been stellar as of late, but Brackins, DG, Christopherson, Allen and White certainly have enough credentials to get invited, i'd think).

    they only invite the very elite high school prospects and a few college freshman to the event. Then the best of these position skill academies get invited to the Lebron James Academy in a few weeks

    Looks like Thomas Robinson has been tearing it up. If he stays out of foul trouble he is going to be a beast next year in the big 12. With him Perry Jones, Nash, and Quincy Miller the big 12 could have 3 or 4 players picked in the lottery next year.

    thomas robinson, john jenkins, jordan taylor, etc are not college frosh. elite college players from nike schools participate, would think cyclone players would qualify. college studs will be at lebron james as well.
