The rosters were announced today for the annual McDonald’s All-American game which highlights the top high school players in the country.

Starting in 1978, McDonald’s created an all-star game to showcase the top high school basketball players from across the United States. The original games was held in Philadelphia at the Spectrum in front of 13,000 fans.

Unfortunately, the actual game will not be played this year due to unnecessary government restrictions. I’m not lovin’ that.

However, the rosters were announced today and one Canadian was included.

Caleb Houstan was named to the McDonald’s All-American squad making him the 11th Canadian to do so joining the likes of Andrew Wiggins, Tristan Thompson, RJ Barrett and more.

Houstan is rated as a 5-star prospect who has committed to play at Michigan.
