2020 McDonald’s All-American Game: Duke, Kansas have three recruits, SEC schools with seven players on roster

The roster for the 2022 McDonald’s All American Game was announced Thursday, and 13 of the top 14 prospects from the 247Sports Composite rankings for the 2022 recruiting class have been invited. Of the 24 total players invited, all are ranked among the top 31 players in the class. The annual showcase game for the nation’s top high school talent and future college basketball stars is set for March 29 in Chicago.

Duke and Kansas each have three players represented on the roster, while the SEC leads the way in conference representation with seven players. While the Blue Devils and Jayhawks are accustomed to signing players who wind up being McDonald’s All-Americans, some of the college programs represented on this season’s roster rarely land such touted prospects.

Alabama has two committed players on the roster (Jaden Bradley and Brandon Miller) for the first time in school history.

Notre Dame signee JJ Starling, for example, is just the program’s second McDonald’s All-American since Luke Zeller in 2005, joining Demetrius Jackson from the class of 2017.

Jarace Walker, who is Houston’s highest-rated signee of the 247Sports era, is also represented on the roster. Among the seven programs to have more than one signee represented on the roster was Arkansas, as Nick Smith Jr. and Jordan Walsh were chosen. It marks the first time since 1988 that the Razorbacks have had two signees from the same class named McDonald’s All-Americans.
