No Gathers? This is an outrage!

Signed the recruiting board

Biggest snubs are Kaleb Tarczewski, Ricky Ledo, and Robert Carter. Also no Gathers, which isn't surprising.

I don't believe Nerlens Noel, Mitch McGary, and Steven Adams were eligible.

Noel might possibly be added to the Jordan rosters (if he isn't on one yet). McDonalds is more official when it comes to this stuff so they already had people listed.

Good to see my boy Marcus Smart make the team after getting snubbed by Jordan

I still remember when last year Tony Wroten wasn't invited and they had like 2 players that were actually on the west coast.

How do they divide East/West? Kid from Indiana on the West and a kid from Kansas on the East?

Last year, Austin Rivers played for the West. Yes, the same Austin Rivers who grew up in Florida

I have no idea how they do it.

McDonald's also won't take 5th year prep players (Adams and McGary this year, John Wall and others in the past), while the other games do.

NC State has a really nice class although I am surprised that Lewis was invited. They are also in play for Jefferson (along with Duke and Villanova) and Torian Graham.

NC State has a top 5 recruiting class and if Graham hadn't decommitted it would be the pack and Arizona standing alone at the top

No.

NC State has a solid class, but it's not as good as Kentucky's now and Kentucky's will only get better. I don't know if you can say that for NC State.

Kentucky's is not as good right now but I have no doubt that they will pick up at least one of their remaining 3 targets, which will vault them into Arizona's level. If they get two, well...I really hope the rest of their guys go pro

Malik Morgan would be a McDAA if he were on a traditionally good team.

re: 2012 McDonald's All-Americans Announced


Here are my predictions for the remaining players in the top 60 or so.

Noel: No clue
Shabazz: UK since UCLA has been so bad.
Pollard: Mississippi State
Bennett: UNLV
Jefferson: Duke
T. Parker-Ohio State
Graham-I guess NC State. Why does he keep committing and decommitting though?
W. Shepard- UNLV

I see Muhammad, Bennett and Noel rounding out Kentucky's class. I know that seems like a huge reach but I see it happening
