The rosters for high school basketball’s version of NBA All-Star Weekend are set.  Yesterday evening, McDonald’s announced the names of the elite high school players from across the country who have been selected to participate in the 2013 McDonald’s All-American Games.  The boys’ and girls’ games will take place on April 3 at the United Center in Chicago. Simeon High (Chicago, Ill.) product Jabari Parker (Duke) headlines the West roster for the boys’ squad, and his matchup against East forward Andrew Wiggins (Huntington Prep, Undecided), the nation’s top-ranked prospect, figures to be one of the prominent storylines in the boys’ game.  Kentucky fans will also want to tune-in to get a glimpse at their future, as five of the 24 players in the boys’ game are big blue recruits, including twin guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison of Texas. Another interesting note about the boys’ roster is that New York City, once a hotbed for high school basketball recruiting, did not have a prospect make the squad.  You can get a full look at the boys’ East and West rosters here. As for the girls’ game, the early storyline centers around two legacies on the girls’ East squad.  Taya Reimer (Notre Dame) will make history as the first daughter of a former McDonald’s All-American to compete in the game (her father Ben Davis played in the 1991 game), and her All-American game teammate Kaela Davis (Georgia Tech) is the daughter of ex-NBA forward Antonio Davis.  You can see the complete girls’ rosters here. Stay with BSO for more in-depth coverage and analysis of high school basketball’s “Rite of Passage” in the coming weeks, and be sure to follow me @AlBruce7 for updates from Chicago on April 3 when the games tip-off.
