McDonald's All American Rosters Revealed
Vandegrift (Austin, Texas) forward Greg Brown is a consensus top five player in the 2020 class, with the stats – 28 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals per game – and consistent Sportscenter-esque highlights to prove it.

Still, on Thursday just prior to learning that he was one of 24 players selected to play in the McDonald’s All American Game, Brown felt a nervous excitement.
“I just concentrate on hard work and I let the rest take care of itself,” Brown said. “It feels great to know that my hard work paid off, and now I’m gonna fulfill one of my biggest dreams.”

The game will commence on April 1 at the Toyota Center in Houston. The breakdown of the East and West rosters will be announced in the coming weeks.
North Carolina led the way with four All Americans, Duke had three and Kentucky had two.
Makes sense that the Wildcats, the Blue Devils and the Tar Heels rank 1-3 in the 2020 recruiting class rankings.
State-wise, California led the way with six All Americans and Georgia boasted five.
Brown is one of four players in the game that are currently undecided.
“I’m most looking forward to the competition,” Brown said. “I love to get better and there’s no better way to do it than to play against the best. This gives me even more motivation to work hard.”
It also gave Brown a free pass to cheat on his diet, at least temporarily.
A few months ago, Brown gave up his go-to meal at McDonald’s – two double cheeseburgers with ketchup and mustard and a large order of fries – to focus on eating healthier.
“I’ve gotta eat that today,” Brown said. “I made the McDonald’s Game so it’s only right. Just today. Got to.”
