And here's MaxPreps forecast of the 2012 McDonald's All American teams:
It's in fact intriguing to know whether newly reclassified Nerlens Noel will be selected...
2012 All-American teams named:
No selection for Nerlens Noel.
Shabazz Muhammad won the slam dunk contest at the 2012 Powerade Jam Fest with a perfect score 140-138 over Archie Goodwin.
Remarkable Breanna Stewart's performance as she was able to dunk twice in the contest.
In the skills competition (quickness in shooting, passing and dribbling) Tyler Lewis won the boys contest but three girls were quicker, Jordan Jones, the winner, Niya Johnson and Alexis Jones.
Morgan Tuck won the girls 3-point contest, while Rasheed Sulaimon prevailed among the boys.

A photo gallery of the most famous alumni in the McDonald's All American games:

Paige-Muhammad play in the short viedoclip is really brilliant!
