UNC Basketball: Four Tar Heels named McDonald’s All-Americans

The UNC Basketball program will be well represented at the 2020 McDonald’s All-American Game in Houston, Texas this year.

The North Carolina Tar Heels 2020 recruiting class will have four ‘Burger Boys’ this year as they wrap up their senior seasons at their respected high schools.

No, the players aren’t working at McDonald’s but instead have been selected to the annual McDonald’s All-American Game that will take place on April 1 in Houston, Texas. The All-Star game announced the rosters on Thursday afternoon including 24 of the top boy’s high school basketball players and 24 of the top girl’s high school basketball players.

Included in the those 24 for the boy’s team were four North Carolina recruits: Walker Kessler, Day’Ron Sharpe, Caleb Love and R.J. Davis:

The four Tar Heels selected to the game are the most for any program in the country with Duke second with three recruits. This is also the third time UNC has had four players in the same class make the game.

UNC also has the most McDonald’s All-American recruits in the history of the event and head coach Roy Williams has had 34 of those recruits under his watch.

North Carolina’s 2020 recruiting class also features four-star forward Donovan “Puff” Johnson and is ranked No. 3 overall in the entire country per 247 Sports. It couldn’t come at a better time as the Tar Heels are currently 8-10 overall and likely will miss the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010. UNC is on a five-game losing streak and unless Cole Anthony returns, it will continue to be a long year.
