Four Future Tar Heels Named McDonald's All-American

New, 63 comments

To go along with the three that came in last season.

UNC class of 2009 recruits Dexter Strickland, John Henson, David and Travis Wear were all selected to play in the McDonald's All America game. UNC leads all schools with four and the ACC has nine total with Duke grabbing two. Clemson, Florida State and Georgia Tech all have one. I would say this bodes well for the future of the ACC but we all know the GT recruit is going to the NBA after one season and one of those Duke players will end of transferring.

One more thing, the player everyone wants, John Wall, is not eligible to play in this game since he is a fifth year senior in high school. That would explain why he is so upfront about only being a one year player in college but also makes me wonder if he is close enough to 19 to declare now? Remember, you do not have to be 19 at the time of the draft, at least that was the case for Kevin Durant who turned 19 the September following the 2007 NBA Draft in which he was taken #2.

The McDonald's All American game will take place on April 1st at 8:00 PM and will likely be televised by ESPN.
