The boys and girls rosters for the annual McDonald's All-American games were announced on Sunday night. New Trier senior forward Jeannie Boehm, a Harvard commit, is the only area boy or girl to make this year's McDonald's All-American game while the boys game won't have a representative from Illinois for only the third time in the boys game's 39-year history.
The McDonald's All-American games return to the United Center for the sixth consecutive year as both games will be played on March 30, with the girls game beginning at 5:30 p.m. and the boys game starting at 8 p.m.
Besides Boehm, the state of Illinois also had St. Thomas More senior forward Tori McCoy, an Ohio State commit, make the McDonald's All-American team. Both Boehm and McCoy will represent the West team in the girls game.
Although the boys game doesn't have any Illinois products, this national Class of 2016 is still considered one of the best of the past 15 years. Kentucky leads the commit charge with four future Wildcats in the game while Duke, Michigan State and UCLA all have two committed prospects each. After seeing eight uncommitted McDonald's All-Americans last year, the 2016 boys game currently only features four uncommitted players.
Chicago basketball fans might also recognize some names on the boys roster from the annual Chicago Elite Classic. Five Chicago Elite Classic alums will participate in the McDonald's All-American game in 2016, including Duke commit Jayson Tatum (Chaminade), Washington commit Markelle Fultz (DeMatha), UConn commit Alterique Gilbert (Miller Grove), Gonzaga commit Zach Collins (Bishop Gorman) and Duke commit Frank Jackson (Lone Peak).
In addition to the Chicago Elite Classic alums, the game includes notable players like potential No. 1 overall prospect Josh Jackson, who is undecided, the future Kentucky backcourt of Malik Monk and De'Aaron Fox and future UCLA guard Lonzo Ball. Malik Monk, an electrifying guard, is the younger brother of former Bears draft pick Marcus Monk.
Tickets for the McDonald's All-American games go on sale on Feb. 6 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster or phone.
