Lincoln's Nash in McDonald's AA game spotlight
With the McDonald's All-American Game coming up Wednesday (ESPN, 9 p.m. CT), ESPN Recruiting takes a look at the most interesting practice matchups.
One matchup spotlighted is between Dallas Lincoln's LeBryan Nash, an Oklahoma State signee, and Michigan State-bound Branden Dawson of Gary, Ind.
Here's the breakdown of the West team wing players:
When it comes to wing players with all the physical gifts these two players are at the top of the list. Both are highlight reels waiting to happen on the break who rebound in and out of their area on both ends of the floor. The advantage in the rebounding department goes to Dawson, a Michigan State signee, but Nash is more skilled and aggressive to score and make things happen. It will be interesting to see if Nash, an Oklahoma State signee, can keep Dawson off the glass and if Dawson can keep Nash from getting to the rim. Some bruises and blood could surface in this powerful wing matchup.
