The boys' rosters for the 2011 McDonald's All-American game have been announced, and once again, the game will be dominated by recruits from schools like Duke, UNC, and Kentucky. Because you don't remain among college basketball's blue bloods without stockpiling blue chip recruits every year.
Indeed, the nation's top recruit, guard Austin Rivers (Duke), will highlight the roster for the West. Next to him will be the nation's number two recruit, Anthony Davis, who's headed to Kentucky in the fall. LeBryan Nash, another top recruit who's headed for Oklahoma State, is the third headliner for the West.
On the opposite side, Kentucky's future forward Michael Gilchrist, the number three recruit in the country, will headline the East. In addition, there's James McAdoo, a superstar forward headed to UNC in the fall. Another star will be point guard Bradley Beal, and he'll be headed to Florida. You can find the full rosters at McDonald's website, and be sure to study them closely.
These names may be anonymous for now, but if past games are any indication, a lot of these players will be larger than life before you know it. Here's to hoping that includes Syracuse recruit Rakeem Christmas, because, well... Because that name's just awesome.
