Kabongo Makes McDonald's AA Game

It wasn't a surprise, but the announcement Thursday made it official: Myck Kabongo is a McDonald's All-American.

The Canadian guard and Findlay Prep native followed in the footsteps of current Longhorn Cory Joseph, who played in the game a year ago. More of a point guard type, Kabongo ranks as Scout.com's No. 11 overall player and No. 2 point guard.

Kentucky has the most prospects selected to the game with four, though five other programs landed multiple All-Americans. The four Kentucky players make up Wildcat coach John Calipari's entire class.

The Big 12 pulled in just two such players, with Kabongo and Oklahoma State's LeBryan Nash making the game.

Nine of Scout's top-10 players made the game, along with 19 of the top-25. Quincy Miller, Scout.com's No. 2 player and a Baylor signee, blew out his ACL at the beginning of the year and wasn't eligible.
