Four North Carolina signees dot McDonald's All American Game rosters

The top 10 prospects in theESPN 100 and 18 of the top 20 have been named to the 43rd annual McDonald's All American Game, led byCade Cunningham, the early projected No. 1 pick in the 2021 NBA draft.

The rosters were unveiled Thursday on ESPN's The Jump.

North Carolina leads the way with four signees, while Duke has three and Kentucky has two. The Wildcats have the nation's top-ranked recruiting class, with Duke and North Carolina rounding out the top three.

The nation's top two committed players --Evan Mobley (No. 2) and Cunningham (No. 3) -- have signed withUSC and Oklahoma State, respectively.

This year's McDonald's All American Game will be played on April 1 at the Toyota Center in Houston. The game took place in Atlanta the previous two years after seven years in Chicago.

The rosters represent 14 college programs, and four players who have yet to commit to a college also have been selected to play. Those four will suit up for the West team. Jalen Green, the nation's top-ranked senior, is also the top unsigned player, and he will be joined in the game by Ziaire Williams (No. 7), Greg Brown (No. 9) and Josh Christopher (No. 10).

The highest-ranked players not selected to this year's game were Makur Maker (No. 12) and Jalen Johnson (No. 15). Both players recently enrolled at new high schools, with Maker heading to Hillcrest Prep (Arizona) and Johnson leaving IMG Academy (Florida) for Nicolet High School (Wisconsin).
