Once again, Kansas will be represented at the prestigious McDonald's All American Game. Swingman Wayne Selden was chose Thursday to participate and be a part of the game on the East squad.

Selden's arrival at Kansas will be highly anticipated in 2013. At 6-5 230 pounds, his talents are immense.

"Wayne is one of the most powerful wings in high school basketball," Jayhawks coach Bill Self said during the fall. "He's got a great frame. He's explosive. He can play the two or three and maybe even play some emergency point. He's big enough to post and defend the four if we decide to go small and he can make shots."

Indeed, Selden is one of the most physically imposing wings in the nation, bringing a rare combination of strength, athleticism, and ability to get in the lane, that is nearly unmatched in this year's class.

In addition, Andrew Wiggins, listed as the top prospect in the country will also play in the game, which is Wednesday April 3rd at Chicago's United Center. Wiggins is considering Kansas along with Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida State.

The only player not invited in Scout's Top 10 was forward Julius Randle, who is visiting Kansas this weekend and that was only because the dynamic power forward suffered an injury that has cost him most of his senior season.
