    Brackins blurb per NBA scout

    Craig Brackins, 6-10 sophomore forward, Iowa State: "He's eventually going to be a pro, but I don't think he's ready physically right now. He has good agility, and he has a small forward's game in a big forward's body. He's not clumsy like a lot of big guys, but when he makes moves off the dribble, he does it with grace and finesse as opposed to strength."

    Blake Griffin and Greg Monroe top NBA scouts' lists - Seth Davis - SI.com

    Hopefully he'll read this or get similar advice and stay another year!

    one more year for him then hes a top 10 pick. if he puts on another 10 pounds of muscle he will be a lot better.... plus next year he will have a lot of national attention because he is breaking on to the scene this year. possible All-American next year

    Re: Brackins blurb per NBA scout

    After reading that list of who is available within country, I see where CB has more upside than almost all of those players. He may need more bulking and coaching, but he can become the real deal in the pros. He is quick and he has shot options. I will not be surprised that his last game in Hilton is coming soon. Hey, the guy is a good looking stud and he would be a good face for any franchise. $$$$

    Reading the guys opinions on other players...he certainly isn't afraid to call it like he see's it...especially with Austin Daye of Gonzaga, "This guy will get you fired...soft? This guy invented soft".

    Re: Brackins blurb per NBA scout

    I think CB would be smart to stay another year. Remember what happened with Fizer? Think another year would not have helped? Went to a horrible team and a horrible situation and a horrible fit.

    CB needs another year of lifting to get a true NBA frame. Huge difference in a payday between top 10 and later in the first round. There always seem to be Euro or other world players that sneak higher than expected too.

    If I thought it was the wise move, I would tell CB to go pro. If I was him, I would stay another year.

    Re: Brackins blurb per NBA scout

    Did going to the NBA early cause Fizer to have troubles with guns and injuries because that's the only reason he isn't still in the NBA. If a guy is serious about an NBA career and a legit first rounder, then I don't think there is any benefit to come back. Every advantage to staying can be accomplished in the off season leading up to their rookie year. You also have to remember that he is already 21.

    I think it is definitely in his favor to stay another year. I don't think he could hurt his draft stock any; he can really only help it and help his team actually accomplish something once it gets some offensive help (ala Gilstrap).

    Just from clearing out some of the people that will leave before him he will move up, then add that he will be strong and probably a bit more polished and he will definitely be a lottery pick.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: Brackins blurb per NBA scout

    He needs some good advice from scouts and GMAC. GMAC is known for producing good bigs and staying would help. The question is how much. What other players are out there to go pro next year? Even if he improves if there are others out there that will leap frog him due to their age then he goes this year. If he will be top of the class next year he should stay and wait for the bigger paycheck. My opinion but there are a lot more factors that play into than him being a good player in the BXII

    If he stays he can work with the coaches what, a few hours a week during the off season? If he goes pro he can work with the best of the best for 8-10 hours a day...

    Re: Brackins blurb per NBA scout

    Another year of conditioning will definately help his stock...but if he gets told that he is a guaranteed first rounder (by the right people) it might be tough to say "no".

    He's on everyone's radar right now, but I doubt he would be a lottery pick...it all depends on Craig, and what he wants for himself and for his family...tough to say no to the money, but his stock would rise if he stuck around for another year.

    If he goes home to LA in the offseason, he can do that, too.
