Three Syracuse players were nominated for McDonald’s All American game, which made its list public on Thursday.
Tyler Ennis, Tyler Roberson and BJ Johnson made the first cut. The game will be played on April 3rd at the United Center in Chicago.
Ennis is rated five stars by Scout.com, and is ranked as the No. 4 overall point guard in his class. Roberson was Rivals.com’s No. 7 small forward in 2013. Johnson averaged 15.8 points to lead Lower Merion (Kobe Bryan’s high school) to a 29-4 record and the PIAA Class AAAA state final.
If any of the three players were selected, it would mark the fourth year in a row that a Syracuse player was a McDonald’s All-American. DaJuan Coleman (2012), Rakeem Christmas (2011), Michael Carter-Williams (2011) and Fab Melo (2010) previously played in the game.
Since the start of the game in 1977, Syracuse has had 19 high school All-Americans.
