There may be some kinks needed to be worked out with the way the data was collected and reported according to what we can tell on first glance, as some players (such as Craig Victor) were missing large bits of information, while others had data that clearly appeared to be misrecorded (such as Josh Gray) or exaggerated.
The heights, weights, wingspans and standings reaches largely match up with other figures we have in our database for the same players, while the athletic testing results seem to leave a lot to be desired.

Blakeney is an elite athlete, and LSU tested him as having a 45 inch running vertical leap, which would be the third highest figure ever according to our extensive database. His 39 inch no-step vertical would rank fourth all-time and his ¾ court sprint time would have tested third best ever. We can only wait and see how Blakeney's vertical numbers hold up when he is invited to the NBA Combine and tested officially down the road, as there is understandably a degree of skepticism among NBA scouts regarding numbers like this.
Simmons also tested off the charts athletically, with a 41 ½ inch vertical, a lightning quick lane agility time, and what would be the all-time fastest ¾ court sprint number in the history of the DraftExpress database if LSU's testing results are to be believed.
Sampson measured 6'5 in shoes, which is slightly lower than he did two years ago at the Nike Elite 100 (whose numbers have not proven to be particularly reliable historically), but he's gained 23 pounds in the past two and a half years, now up to a much more solid 185. His 6'8 ¼ wingspan is a little longer than previously thought, and fairly solid, albeit not overwhelming, for a shooting guard.
-A missing line of data meant that Craig Victor's height, weight and wingspan were not listed on the measurements provided by LSU. Only his reach, bodyfat, hand length and hand width were.
-Josh Gray's wingspan is listed as being 7'0, which seems fairly improbable considering he measured just 6'0 without shoes.
