BLYTHEWOOD – Blythewood’s Tre Jackson had a superb 33-point showing at the MLK bash this weekend, but that is not the only feather the Iowa State-commit can add to his cap. Jackson was selected as one of 400 nominees for the 2019 McDonald’s All-American Game in Atlanta at the State Farm arena on Mar. 27.

Twenty-four of the top players will be selected by the Games’ Selection Committee to play in the event. The McDonald’s All-American Game has been a running tradition since its inception in 1977 and has showcased a slew of some basketball’s most decorated superstars.

Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and numerous other all-stars and hall of famers have participated in the showcase. Jackson was among six players to be selected from the state of South Carolina. Jackson has average 23 points per game this year to go with almost seven rebounds, four steals and nearly four assists per contest.
