UNC Recruits Isiah Hicks, Kennedy Meeks and Nate Britt Nominated for McDonalds All-American Game

North Carolina’s trio in the class of 2013 Isiah Hicks, Kennedy Meeks and Nate Britt have been nominated to play in the Mcdonalds All-American game.

All three prospects have signed letters of intent to play for UNC next season.  The Tar Heels 2013 recruiting class is currently ranked #6 in the nation and could receive a significant boost if they are able to land #1 prospect Andrew Wiggins.  In all 64 Tar Heels have played in the game which is widely recognized as the top high school All-American game in the country (although the Jordan brand game is giving it a push for that title).

The final roster of 24 who will play in this years game will be announced during the McDonald’s All American Games Selection Show on ESPNU on February 14 at 5:00 p.m. ET.  The game will take place on April 3rd at Chicago’s United Center.

Legends such as Michael Jordan, Tyler Hansbrough, Sean May, Rasheed Wallace and many others who have donned the Carolina blue played in the game over the years.  Here’s a look at the history of UNC players in the prestigious event.
