The 2018 McDonald's All-American Game not only showcased the best talent in high school basketball, but it also marked the first time all three of the top players are set to hoop for the same college program.
R.J. Barrett, Cameron Reddish, and Zion Williamson are the top recruits in the 2018 class per 247Sports’ Composite Rankings and they are all committed to Duke.
Tre Jones, the brother of former Duke star Tyus Jones, is yet another 2018 All-American that is headed to Durham next season.
It's easy to see why the Blue Devils have the No. 1 ranked recruiting class in the country and it's a crazy amount of talent - even by Coach K's standards.
Wednesday night, Blue Devils fans got a taste of what they should expect to see from the young stars.
Williamson has generated a lot of noise online, thanks to his devastating dunks which as you can see from the video above he makes look easy. His size certainly helps his cause and it's also a big reason why the forward has drawn comparisons to none other than LeBron James.
Unfortunately, Williamson suffered an apparent hand injury with over six minutes second half after he tried to brace a fall with his right hand.
Here's a video of the incident:
Williamson did not return to the game and finished with eight points and five rebounds in 17 minutes of action. ESPN college basketball insider Jeff Goodman reports that Williamson will see an orthopedist on Thursday.
Meanwhile, according to Zion Williamson's parents say 'he's fine' after injury in the McDonald's All American Game">USA Today, Williamson's parents said that he is "fine."
Despite the fact the trio has yet to play a second of college ball, a 2019 NBA Mock Draft by ESPN has them projected to be selected with the top three picks. So much for the one and done era being over anytime soon.
