Gary Harris committed to the Michigan State Spartans in November as part of a pretty solid recruiting class. Before he officially comes to campus, however, the Indiana native will play in the 2012 McDonald's All-American game.
The rosters were released on Thursday with Harris being one of 24 players selected to play in the annual high school all-star game. Harris became the third Spartans players in three years to be placed on the roster, joining Keith Appling and Branden Dawson.
"For 35 years, the McDonald's All American Games have showcased the best and the brightest high school stars nationwide and in 2012 the beat goes on," said Douglas Freeland, director of the McDonald's All American Games. "On March 28, fans have the chance to witness these elite players and get the first look at the world's future basketball stars."
The game will be broadcast live on ESPN at 9:30 p.m. on March 28 with a Jam Fest -- featuring a three-point, dunk and skills contest -- taking place on March 26.
