Harris named McDonald's All-American

For the third straight season, MSU has an incoming freshman named a McDonald's All-American. This time, it's guard Gary Harris.

The last two seasons, Keith Appling and Branden Dawson have represented MSU at the game, which will take place on March 28 in Chicago.

Harris is rated the No. 11 recruit in the nation, according to, which has MSU's incoming freshman class ranked No. 10 in the country.

To illustrate how important the game is, in 2010, Appling took 15 shots in 17 minutes, including nine three-pointers, finishing with 10 points. It's pretty much every man for himself showing off in front of people.

The first McDonald's All-American team was named in 1977 and included future Spartan Earvin "Magic" Johnson. MSU has had 15 McDonald's All-Americans all-time.
