Adidas Nations Rosters Announced

The Adidas Nation teams have been released today and the American squads look absolutely loaded. Draft Express posted the rosters on their website and it certainly looks like the USA should have no issue winning all of the top positions.

Among some of the rosters, USA Red, which consists of 2014 recruits should be an absolute terror. The team features top recruit Jahlil Okafor, guard Jaquan Lyle and forwards Justice Winslow and Kevon Looney. Okafor and Winslow both took part in the Under 19 championship where the USA took home the gold medal. All four of the players are some of the best recruits in the nation and should be the favorites to win the tournament.

Their counterpart, USA Blue, should be a strong offering as well. The team will be headlined by Emmanuel Mudiay and Trey Lyles. Mudiay is a virtuoso at point guard and has flash and subtance. As a big man, Lyles might be the closest competitor for Okafor in the class of 2014.

Other noteworthy competitors on the other USA teams, which is comprised of 2015 and 2016 recruits are Malik Newman, Tyler Dorsey and the 7″1 Stephen Zimmerman who has intrigued scouts for a long time.

The other competing nations will be Africa, Australia, Latin American, the Philippines and Russia.
