Andrew Wiggins has declared for the NBA draft, and Jabari Parker will be making his decision in short order. Both athletes headlined a strong field in last year's McDonald's All-American Game.

This year features a bevy of talent as well.

2014 marks the 37th anniversary for the boys—Magic Johnson was named to the very first team back in 1970—and the 13th anniversary for the girls—Ann Strother was named co-MVP in the girls inaugural match in 2002.

The girls take the floor in Chicago's United Center on Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET (ESPNU), and the boys follow at 8:30 p.m. ET (ESPN).

Be sure to tune in for the action as these future stars participate in the same rite of passage as many of the nation's top players—both past and present.

Let's take a look at the full roster for each team before these young athletes begin to light up the scoreboard.

 

Boys Roster

Two of high school's most dominating big men face off this year. Jahlil Okafor takes the court for the West, and Cliff Alexander leads the East.

Okafor is joined by Emmanuel Mudiay—one of the nation's top point guards—as well as Kelly Oubre, Stanley Johnson and future Duke teammate Grayson Allen.

Alexander will headline an East squad featuring Tyus Jones—a top prospect at point guard—along with Myles Turner, Justin Jackson, Theo Pinson and future Kentucky Wildcat Karl Towns Jr.

These teams feature the nation's best young talent, and we should be in for a dazzling show.

Girls Roster

Andrew Nelles

The girls teams are in for a battle in the paint, as they boast some of the most athletic centers in the nation.

The 6'4" Jatarie White and the 6'2" Lynee' Belton headline the East, while Alyssa Rice and Chatrice White—two 6'3" centers—lead the West.

Action won't only be found on the inside, as each team features some high-octane guards as well.

Kelsey Mitchell will face off against the West's Jordin Canada in what promises to deliver some fast-paced thrills on the perimeter.

Both teams are deep at each position and will produce some quality basketball on Wednesday.
