McDonald's All-American Game officials released the list of nominees this week for its prestigious boys and girls high school all-star games set to tip off in April. The McDonald's All-American games highlight some of the top boys and girls basketball seniors in the country. 

Little Rock Central senior Jordan Marshall  (Louisiana Tech) was the lone Arkansas girl on the list. The boys nominees included Little Rock Central's Annor Boateng (Missiouri), Farmington's Layne Taylorn (North Texas), Little Rock Parkview's Dallas Thomas (Clemson) and Little Rock Christian Academy's Landren Blocker (Louisiana Tech). 

The games' final rosters will be released later this season. The games will be played in Houston on Tuesday, April 2, with the girls game at 5:30 p.m. on ESPN2 and the boys game immediately following on ESPN at 8 p.m.

No Arkansas player played in the game last season. North Little Rock's Nick Smith and Kel'el Ware were on the 2022 boys roster.
