McDonald's All American Game Roster: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Shannon Scott Add Local Flavor

The 2011 McDonald's All-American Game (complete rosters here) will feature a host of prospects that will be attending school in either the SEC or ACC next season. There is also a local feel to the game with Greenville High's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Milton High's Shannon Scott being selected as part of the East team. Caldwell-Pope will suit up in Athens next season as a part of Mark Fox's Bulldogs while Scott will be heading north to play in the Big 10 at Ohio State.

John Calipari's Kentucky Wildcats are well represented with four players in the McDonald's game who will all be attending school in Lexington next season. Michael Gilchrist, Anthony Davis, Marquise Teague, and Kyle Wiltjer give Calipari another All-Star recruiting class.

Not to be outdone, Duke has three players in the game including Austin Rivers who ESPN.com has rated as the No. 1 player in the nation. Point Guard Quinn Cook provides the Blue Devils insurance if Kyrie Irving decides to goto the NBA and Marshall Plumlee continues the long line of Plumlees to pass through Cameron Indoor.

North Carolina has two representatives in the game with shooting guard P.J. Hairston and power forward James McAdoo both suiting up for the East team. St Louis guard Bradley Beal will play next season for Billy Donovan's Florida Gators and Cleveland Mississippi's Johnny O'Bryant will head to LSU next season.

The McDonald's All Star game will take place on Wednesday March 30th at 10 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on ESPN.
