    Here is the list of every McDonald's All-American that is currently on a college roster:

    (7) North Carolina: Zeller, Drew, Henson, Strickland, Barnes, Marshall, Bullock
    (5) Duke: Singler, Smith, Plumlee, Kelly, Irving
    (4) Florida: Macklin, Rosario, Boynton, Young
    Villanova: Stokes, Wayns, Cheek, Pinkston
    UCLA: Lee, D. Wear, T. Wear, Smith
    (3) Texas: Lucas, Joseph, Thompson

    Kentucky: Jones, Knight, Lamb
    (2) Georgetown: Wright, Freeman
    Connecticut: Walker, Oriakhi
    Tennessee: Hopson, Harris
    Florida State: Singleton, Snaer
    (1) Alabama: Green
    Georgia Tech: Shumpert
    Mississippi State: Sidney
    Washington: Gaddy
    Kansas State: Judge
    Pittsburgh: Taylor
    Clemson: Jennings
    Louisville: Siva
    Detroit-Mercy: McCallum
    Syracuse: Melo
    Illinois: Richmond
    Michigan State: Appling
    Baylor: Jones III
    Memphis: Jackson
    North Carolina State: Leslie
    Kansas: Selby
    Concordia (NAIA): King

    Notes:
    - I had a few different questions or theories going on in my head when I put this together, but I wanted to leave this without comment to see where CF went with this before I post my thoughts.
    - I may have missed one or two, but this should all be correct.
    - This list does include players who are sitting out this year - Mike Rosario, Jayvaughn Pinkson, and the Wear twins; I think it's just those four.
    - This list does not include those who were ineligible as a 5th year senior, such as Will Barton and Jordan Hamilton.
    - I wish I had added classes by each name; I might edit that in at some point.

    Re: McDonald's All-Americans

    It just shows you that these guys get asked to be Mickey's AA based on where they went to school. Larry Drew a Mickey's AA? He is awful

    Re: McDonald's All-Americans

    It would be interesting to see the numbers/list for every year for the past decade.

    Re: McDonald's All-Americans

    UNC, Florida and UCLA stand out. None of those teams are ranked and have at least 4 McD's AAs. Somethings not adding up there. I watched Florida barely beat a terrible Auburn team last night. Very unimpressive.

    Re: McDonald's All-Americans

    No wonder Roy recruits so well. He must have the selection committee on speed dial. You commit to UNC and I will get you in that McDonald's All American game.

    The Wear twins? Really?
    Larry Drew?

    Fizer wasn't. The only McDs all american that committed to ISU was Jerome Harper, and he never made it to campus.

    Technically, he did make it to campus. He was around for at least a semester, but never played in game as he was sitting out.

    When did Harper commit? I though there was a big fuss about him being the first McD AA to come to ISU?

    Re: McDonald's All-Americans

    IMO, there is a lot of politics that go into being a burger boy now. Things are not what they used to be in regard to getting that honor.
