Two high school seniors who will soon be freshman at The Ohio State University have been selected to participate in the McDonald's All American Game.

Montverde (Fla.) guard D'Angelo Russell and Princeton (Cincinnati) point guard Kelsey Mitchell are slated to play in the high school all-star game, April 2, in Chicago at the United Center. Russell is a five-star player in Thad Matta's 2014 class, while Mitchell is rated as the top point guard and No. 3 overall, according to ESPN, in their 2014 women's basketball recruiting rankings. 

Ohio State target and five-star center Myles Turner (Euless, Texas) joins Russell on the East squad. On the women's side, Notre Dame signee Kathryn Westbeld (Kettering) and Kentucky signee Alyssa Rice (Reynoldsburg) are the other Ohio natives selected.

The full rosters can be found at the link below.

Congratulations to these 2! I'm a little surprised KBD didn't get in

Russell is gonna be a great one, heck of a shooter. Congrats to him as well as Mitchell. Hopefully Turner will decide to come to OSU as well.

Nice to see, good news on the basketball front has been scarce recently.

Can they skip the all American game and play now.  God we need shooters.

OSU will get much better and much younger next year. Now all they need is a big man...

Can they enroll early and suit up for Wisky?
