McDonald’s All American Game Recap

Recapping the McDonald’s All American Game and highlighting the 2020 NBA draft prospects performances

Cole Anthony was named MVP. The undecided recruit scored 14 points, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds while showing off his transition game in a wide open all star game pace, although he did go 0 for 3 from deep. Wherever he ends up choosing to play in college, they are going to get a floor general that can score and lead an offense as well as any other point guard in the class.

Jaden Mcdaniels had 7 points, 2 assists and 2 rebounds in 15 minutes of action. The potential 2020 #1 overall pick is a rare breed of athlete at 6’11” 185 with guard movement/agility. He hit a three showing off his stroke which looks like it will translate well at the next level.

Anthony Edwards scored 12 points to go with 3 assists, and 2 rebounds. His athleticism was on display and he runs the floor leading to easy finishes as good as any guard in the class. His outside shot will be the thing he needs to improve on going forward.

Precious Achiuwa went for 22 points and 9 rebounds on 10 for 20 shooting from the field. His 6’9″ frame and athleticism make him an intriguing wing, and whatever campus he chooses to call home will be getting a star. He shot 1 for 4 on three pointers, something that if he figures out, it will make him a very tough assignment to guard in college and beyond.

Scottie Lewis had 10 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists. His athleticism will get most of the social media attention, but he can shoot the basketball, as well as get to the rim at will.

• With Florida getting Tre Mann and Scottie Lewis next season, to go with Andrew Nembhard and Noah Locke, they are going to be loaded in the backcourt. Mann scored 5 points to go with 3 assists while making an impressive three late in the game.

Kahlil Whitney struggled going 1 for 5 from the field and finishing with 2 points. It can be tough to get your rhythm in these types of games at times, and Whitney just never got going.

• Whitney’s future Kentucky teammate Tyrese Maxey had a better night going 5 for 10 (3-6 from deep) from the field and finishing with 13 points to go with 1 assist.  He can play on or off the ball, but he projects as a point guard at the next level and the NBA should he get there.

James Wiseman had 13, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists. The future Memphis Tiger can run the floor very well, which should lead to many easy opportunities in college. His face up game is solid for someone this young, and his three point shot looks like it will improve with a decent stroke as the base.

Josh Green scored 8 points to go with 5 assists. At 6’6″ he projects as a shooting guard with good size, and although he went 0 for 2 on 3 pointers he can be an efficient shooter.

Bryan Antoine went 1 of 4 from the field and scored 2 points in 13 minutes on the floor. As a 6’5″ point guard he stands out, even in these elite all star games. He can play off the ball as well as being the lead guard, but scouts are no doubt intrigued by his ability to shoot the ball and run the point at his size.

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl played well finishing with 13 points and 4 rebounds. He went 1 for 2 from deep, showing a little range which should fit in nicely at Villanova as a 6’8″ freshman with Eric Paschall leaving.

Samuell Williamson was a surprise, showing that he has an all around game to go with his length and athleticism. The future Louisvlle Cardinal scored 11 points to go with 3 rebounds.

Isaiah Stewart got plenty of easy looks and dunks, scoring 16 points. His tweener status as a 6’9 center could be an issue when scouts are looking how his game will translate to the NBA, and he will need to work on outside game. In college, he should be a dominant force from day one inside of the paint as he tries to improve on the other areas of his game.
