Aaron Gordon capped off an eventful week in the best way a high school star could hope for, scoring 24 points and grabbing eight rebounds on his way to winning the MVP away at the McDonald’s All-American Game in Chicago, Ill., Wednesday. His West team defeated the East, 110-99.
Gordon committed to coach Sean Miller and Arizona earlier in the week in a press conference announcement at the event. He joins a recruiting class that includes fellow McDonald’s All-American Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Top 100 guard Elliott Pitts.
The game was also billed as the first national peek for many at Andrew Wiggins, considered the best prep player in the nation. Wiggins had 19 points for the East and remains uncommitted to a school. He is considering Kentucky, Kansas, Florida State, and North Carolina.
The player who was ranked No. 1 in the nation prior to Wiggins’ reclassification was Jabari Parker, another All-American. Parker finished with 10 points and eight rebounds to help the West to a win. He is committed to play for Duke next season.
