Michigan Basketball Recruit Mitch McGary Named to Team USA

Michigan 2012 basketball recruit Mitch McGary has been granted a rare opportunity, and will join nine of his fellow seniors from around the country as representatives for Team USA's Junior National Select Team.

Other names that made the cut include a trio of undecided top prospects, Nerlens Noels, Shabazz Muhammed and Tony Parker, along with five-star Michigan State signee and Indiana native Gary Harris. Kyle Anderson (UCLA), Kaleb Tarczewski (Arizona), Archie Goodwin (Kentucky), Marcus Paige (North Carolina), and Rasheed Sulaimon (Duke) round out the rest of the five-star-laden roster.

According to Scout.com's class rankings, McGary (No. 21) is the second lowest ranked player that made the squad, ahead of only North Carolina's future point guard Marcus Paige (No. 29). But for a kid who was being touted by virtually everyone as a top five player in the class literally months ago, it would have been a legit surprise to see McGary's name left off this list.

McGary and his peers will take on a rival World Select Team on April 7 at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon, in a game that should feature about 50 dunks. Since it's clear that all ten guys will likely see the floor for extended stretches, this will be a great chance for UM fans to get a look at the future of Michigan basketball.
