Ohio State recruiting: D'Angelo Russell named McDonald's All-American

USA TODAY Sports

Ohio State signee D'Angelo Russell has been selected to participate in April's 2014 McDonald's All-American game.

After being nominated earlier this month alongside classmates Keita Bates-Diop and Jae'Sean Tate, future Buckeye guard D'Angelo Russell has been selected to participate in the McDonald's All-American game. Russell will suit up as a member of the East squad. The annual event, places the top prospects from the East Coast against the best from the West Coast and has had it's fair share of both current and future NBA Hall of Fame inductees take part over the last 30 years.

The 6'4 180-pound Russell, who is the 17th ranked prospect in the 2014 recruiting class according to the 247Composite, missed the first few weeks of his senior season recovering from knee surgery but has showed his injury is far behind him with his play on the court over the last few weeks for the Montverde Academy (FL) Eagles.

At the recent Bass Pro Shops Tournament of Champions held in Springfield, Missouri, Russell, who averaged 22 points a contest, was named Offensive Most Valuable Player after leading Montverde to a  3-0 record and a tournament title.

Russell isn't the first Buckeye signee to take the court at the McDonald's game. D'Angelo adds his name to a list the includes ex-Ohio State hoopsters Clark Kellogg, Jimmy Jackson, Greg Simpson, Treg Lee, Greg Oden, Mike Conley, Byron Mullens, William Buford, Jared Sullinger and current point guard Shannon Scott as just a few of the many players with OSU ties.
