Headlining Bronny James and four Kentucky signees, 22 of the ESPN 100’s top 23 prospects have been named to the 46th annual McDonald’s All American Game.
The rosters were unveiled Tuesday on ESPN’s NBA Today.
Kentucky, which has the No. 1 recruiting class in 2023, is leading the way with its four signatories. Top prospect Justin Edwards, No. 3 DJ Wagner and No. 4 Aaron Bradshaw headline the Wildcats squad, while No. 21-ranked Reed Sheppard rounds out the foursome. Robert Dillingham, the fifth highest ranked member of John Calipari’s class, was ineligible since joining Overtime Elite after leaving Donda Academy (California).
Dillingham, ranked No. 11 in the ESPN 100, is the highest-ranked player not selected for the game.
Duke’s No. 2-ranked recruiting class is represented by Mackenzie Mgbako (No. 8), Jared McCain (No. 12) and Sean Stewart (No. 16). Michigan State and Oregon each have two signers in the game.
A total of 15 different colleges — and the G League Ignite program — are represented on the rosters.
Only one uncommitted player has been selected this year: Bronny James, son of LeBron James. James, a 6-foot-3 guard from Sierra Canyon High School (California), consistently improved his game during his high school career and is now considered one of the best two-way guards in the class. He is recruited by Oregon, Ohio State, USC and others.
The McDonald’s All American Games Boys and Girls will be held in Houston on March 28 at the Toyota Center.
