The McDonald’s All-American Game, announced Thursday, promises another look at what should become a classic matchup between two future NBA stars- Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker.
After the Jordan Brand Classic rosters were announced earlier this week, McDonald’s followed up with an announcement featuring an equally impressive list of the country’s best high school basketball talent.
Like the Jordan Brand Classic, the McDonald’s game, to be played at Chicago’s United Center on April 3, will be highlighted by the matchup of Wiggins and Parker- the top two prospects from the class of 2013. Wiggins, widely regarded as the No. 1 prep basketball prospect going around, will suit up for the East team while Parker, who has seen his stock dip ever so slightly in the past year, will lead the West. Both highly talented small forwards measure in around the 6’7″-6’8″ mark and their matchup could steal the show.
But those two won’t be the only attractions featuring in the McDonald’s game- twin brothers Andrew and Aaron Harrison will also turn heads for the West team. Playing point guard and shooting guard respectively, Andrew and Aaron are top five recruits on most major national boards and both are expected to have very successful college careers under the tutelage of coach John Calipari at Kentucky.
Other must-watch players include East guards Kasey Hill and Wayne Seldon. Both are extremely talented players and are highly athletic with great skills.
