Stars to Watch

Each of these athletes are incredibly impressive and are sure to put on dazzling performances. There are, however, a handful that stand out from the field. These are the stars to keep a watchful eye on during the McDonald's All-American Game.

 

Jahlil Okafor

Okafor is one of the most promising prospects in the nation. The 6'10", 256-pound center has a big frame and is an absolute force down low. His combination of size, length and deceptive athleticism make him one of the most dangerous inside threats in the game.

Expect to see plenty of points in the paint and excessive rebounds from Okafor.

 

Myles Turner

Turner is another big man to watch. At 7'0" and 240 pounds, he has a long, athletic frame that allows him to flourish in the post. Turner runs the floor very well, with excellent speed for a big man, and can be a major cog in the transition game.

Watch for Turner to dominate down low in screen-and-roll situations.

The 6'9", 240-pound Alexander is a terrifying sight in the paint both on the offensive and defensive ends of the court. He has an aggressive style of play and attacks the rim with authority. Alexander is very active on the defensive side as well, as he's accumulated a plethora of blocked shots.

Alexander will bring a high level of intensity and will certainly be fun to watch.

 

Tyus Jones

Jones is one of the most mature players that will be featured here. He is a natural leader and orchestrates the offense with precision. He has a knack of making everyone around him better. Jones stands at 6'1", weighs 171 pounds and can be a big shooting threat from all over the court.

Watch for Jones to command his team and put up big individual numbers as well.

 

Emmanuel Mudiay

Mudiay has tremendous size for his position—he stands at 6'5" and weighs 190 pounds. He had a tremendous physical advantage over other guards and can be a matchup nightmare. His footwork is stellar and allows him to block out defenders to create separation to get open looks.

Expect Mudiay to put up points both in the paint and from the perimeter.
