Oregon has two future Ducks on the roster for the 2023 McDonald's All-American Game
Oregon will see two future Ducks take the court this spring at the 46th annual McDonald’s All-American Game.
Rosters were revealed for the high school all-star showcase live on ESPN Tuesday afternoon. Oregon has signees on both of the 12-man squads. Kwame Evans Jr. will play for the East while Mookie Cook will play with the West.

Cook is a 5-star wing from Chandler (Ariz.) Compass Prep. He’s the 25th-ranked prospect in the class and the fifth-ranked small forward. Evans is the highest-ranked in the Ducks’ three-man signing class. A 6-foot-9 forward from Montverde (Fla.) Academy, Evans is the 14th-ranked recruit and the fifth-ranked power forward.
Bronny James — LeBron James’ son — was also selected to play in the game.
It was recently reported that Oregon is currently one of Bronny’s top three schools. Over the weekend, the elder James confirmed the interest between Oregon and his son is mutual. Bronny will play for the West team alongside Cook, one of his friends. The two have reportedly discussed playing college ball together, so perhaps Cook and Evans will do a bit more peer recruiting when they get to Houston.
The game takes place on March 28 at the Toyota Center in Houston.
