High School Basketball: 2021 McDonald’s All American Game Roster Predictions

By Max Feldman

Current events surrounding COVID-19 are trending in the right direction for the 2021 McDonald’s All American Game, usually scheduled for late March. The 2020 MCDAAG was cancelled due to the pandemic, although the selections retained their All-American status. The annual All-American game gives evaluators an initial opportunity to analyze the nation’s top high school talent competing against one another through the practices, televised scrimmage and game. A year ago, FOG only missed on three selections in the 2020 MCDAAG Predictions.

Rather than the East vs. West breakdown from a year ago, the projected 24 players are listed and where they rank in the class due to MCDAAG’s odd system of breaking up the team disregarding geographic location.

Following last years trend, a few highly regarded prospects will likely take the professional route. Doing so makes the prospect ineligible for the MCDAAG. The projected will be listed with an asterisk below.
