West Virginia basketball commit Oscar Tshiebwe has been named a McDonald’s All-American. It the first time a WVU recruit has been named to the McDonald’s All-American team since Chris Brooks in 1986.

The McDonald’s All American game showcases the best and most talented athletes of high school basketball in America.

The honor is a huge one for Tshiebwe, only 24 men have been invited to play in the event, largely regarded as one of the highest honors a high school basketball player can receive.

This is the first signee in the Bob Huggins era to land on the roster, and a very big moment for the program as a whole.

He will play for the West on March 27th. The game is in Atlanta and will be broadcasted nationally on ESPN.

The game is a great way for everyone to have a chance to see Oscar play. He has had an absolutely dominate season averaging over 23 points per game.

There’s no doubting his potential, he was a highly sought after recruit and at 6’9” 250 pounds he has a dominating presence in the paint.

He is a physical rebounder that can score with the best of them, and his highlight tape is unreal.

This is the best opportunity mountaineer nation will have to watch and support Tshiebwe before he officially plays his games in the WVU Coliseum.
