Boys Basketball: Nick Griffin, 6 Others Nominated For McDonald’s All-American Game

Senior Nick Griffin from the defending state champion Magruder High School boys basketball team was among the seven Montgomery County players nominated Thursday for the McDonald’s All-American Game. Andrew Calomeris, Louie Brill and Eric Rupprecht from Good Counsel were also nominated, as were Jordan Swopshire, Ishmail Wainwright and Mark Williams of Montrose Christian.

A total of more than 800 players from 39 states and the District of Columbia were nominated for the boys and girls games. The final 24-player boys roster will be announced February 14, with the game scheduled for April 3 at the United Center in Chicago.

Griffin, a 6′ 2″ shooting guard, has committed to play for George Washington University next year, while the 6′ 6″ Swopshire is reported to be weighing offers from GW, Kent State, UC Irvine and Virginia Commonwealth. Calomeris, whose recruiting process was disrupted when he suffered a collapsed lung  last season and a fractured vertebrae over the summer, has said he will play for Indiana University as a walk-on.
