The rosters for the annual McDonald's All-American Game were announced Thursday and three local prospects were selected.

Morgan Park star Wayne Blackshear will play on the West Team alongside Anthony Davis of Perspectives Charter. They will be coached by Westchester's St. Joseph High School head coach Gene Pingatore.

Blackshear, a Louisville recruit, and Davis, a Kentucky recruit, played AAU basketball together.

Tennessee recruit Ariel Massengale, from Bollingbrook, will play for the East in the girls game. Dorothy Gaters, from Chicago's Marshall High School, will coach the West Team.

Both games will take place March 30 at the United Center.
