Bay Area prep stars nominated for McDonald’s All-American Game

A slew of Bay Area high school basketball seniors garnered McDonald’s All-American Game nominations.

The McDonald’s All-American Game, typically played in Chicago, will not commence this year, but countless Bay Area players earned recognition ahead of their senior seasons before they embark on their collegiate careers soon.

Girls Basketball Nominees

Three Archbishop Mitty players were nominees on the girls side, starting with Hunter Hernandez. A soon-to-be four-year varsity player, Hernandez’s career averages read 8.4 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, lifting the Monarchs to a combined 80-7 record, three West Catholic Athletic League titles, three Central Coast Section crowns and one Northern California championship in her first three years.

Next to Hernandez is Marley Langi, a UC Davis bound athlete who scored 6.3 points per game last year in Mitty’s run to 26 victories and a Northern California title to cap it off. Olivia Williams, a UV Irvine signee, averaged 12.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 steals.

Also among the girls nominees are Bishop O’Dowd’s Kennedy Johnson, a UC Santa Barbara bound star whose Dragons team won 23 games in 2019-20 and was the California Interscholastic Federation Division I champion at the Northern California level, and Piedmont’s Nakilah Johnson, whose Piedmont squad won 21 games in 2019-20. 

Boys Basketball Nominees

Seven Bay Area boys basketball players were nominated for the McDonald’s All-American game, including six Bishop O’Dowd seniors.

Greg Aranha started off the Bishop O’Dowd players nominated for the game, next to Henry Palmer, Rejai Palmore, Taj Phillips and future Cal Bear Marsalis Roberson. Bishop O’Dowd captured North Coast Section and Northern California crowns last season.

The other Bay Area player was Prolific Prep’s Nathan Bittle, an Oregon signee who originally hails from the state of Oregon before moving out to Napa for the remainder of his prep career. Bittle is tabbed as a consensus five-star prospect.
