    McDonalds AA Nominees

    http://www.mcdepk.com/2013allamerica...oys_Girls).pdf

    Note how hilarious this list is - 35 kids from Iowa????

    The flaws of the nominating process are well documented, but its interesting that in Wisconsin you have to be a legit DI recruit to make this list - in Iowa, you apparently just need a pulse.

    Maybe they are looking at their pulse upside.

    I wonder if Thomas has a real shot at this? I remember reading somewhere it was felt he had a chance.

    Re: McDonalds AA Nominees

    In regards to the Iowa nominees......this kind of says it all doesn't it?

    Travis Hines@TravisHines21 Vashawn Green of Ames, who played in three games, averaged 1.5 points and is no longer on the team, is a McDonald's All-American nominee.

    I've played with him before. Horrible teamate, doesn't listen to coaches and he had some potential. About 6-4 and was pretty athletic he just never listened. This just shows basically everyone is a nominee. I'm pretty sure he wasn't on the team last year either. He always claimed to have a Chicago State offer but I highly doubt it.

    The heading actually reads "People who have eaten at a McDonald's in America list".

    Re: McDonalds AA Nominees

    I was thinking that next year I may create a fictitious high school basketball player, get a bunch of social media support for him, perhaps claim he is dying of leukemia and that being a McDonalds AA is his dying wish and see if the folks at McDonalds fall for the hoax.

    Can anyone think of someone I could talk to for advice on pulling off such a hoax?

    If you a MAA Nominee you should be D1 Talent. That is all.

    Agreed. Why not just select them from a list of players that has one requirement....you have to have either accepted a Division I offer, or have at least recieved some number of offers......say 5, or whatever?

    Iowa has more nominees than either Texas or California. Also....Jadda Buckley, an ISU recruit, and the 33rd ranked player in next year's class by ESPN....did not make the Iowa cut, and she may actually have a chance to make the team.

    It is kind of embarrassing for Iowa, but at least they do not appear to be alone. I would say Maryland, N. Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Oregon and Virginia may also have issues with their process.
