Trio of UNC recruits named to McDonald's All-American Game


Tonight McDonald’s announced the final rosters for the 2014 McDonald’s All American Game that will be played on April 2nd. The game will be played at the United Center in Chicago and will feature all three players in UNC’s current 2014 class.

Point Guard Joel Berry, small forwards Justin Jackson and Theo Pinson were selected to the game as they become the latest Tar Heels to be elected to the game. North Carolina has the second most recruits playing in the game with three. Only Kentucky and Duke have more with four each.

North Carolina and Duke were the lone ACC schools to have players nominated. This will be the eighth time since Roy Williams has been the coach that the Tar Heels will have two or more players featured in the game.

The Tar Heels could have one more player in the game if recruit Rashad Vaughn signs with the Tar Heels. He was also elected to the game and will visit North Carolina on February 15th. Regardless of whether Vaughn commits or not, all of UNC’s recruits will represent the school in the McDonald’s All-American Game!

The full roster for the game can be found here.
