"She-Bron" is an All-American.
Kierstan Bell, a five-star guard from Canton's McKinley who will join Kevin McGuff's Ohio State team next season, was announced as McDonald's All-American on Thursday afternoon. The game will be played on March 27 in Atlanta.
Bell was a McDonald's All-American nominee along with three future Ohio State teammates – Rikki Harris, Kaelynn Satterfield and Jacy Sheldon – who did not make the final roster.
She is the No. 6 overall prospect in her class and the highest-ranked recruit to sign with the Buckeyes since Kelsey Mitchell. Ohio State's five-player 2019 recruiting class contains four top-100 recruits, including Bell. She committed to Ohio State on Aug. 25.
None of the three Ohio State men's basketball signees – five-star guard DJ Carton and four-star forwards E.J. Liddell and Alonzo Gaffney – were selected as McDonald's All-Americans, though each of them were among the 800 nominees.
