University of Arizona Commits Brandon Williams, Shareef O’Neal are McDonald’s All-American nominees

Arizona Wildcats signees Brandon Williams and Shareef O’Neal have been nominated for the 2018 McDonald’s All-American Game, it was announced this week.

They are two of about 700 players (male and female) to receive the nomination.

The top 24 boys and top 24 girls will be chosen by the games’ selection committee, and the final rosters will be revealed on Tuesday, Jan. 16.

The full list of nominees can be found here.

Williams, a 6-foot-2 point guard, is the No. 33 player in the 2018 class. The Encino, Calif. product is averaging 22.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.1 assists this season coming off knee surgery.

O’Neal, a 6-foot-9 forward from Santa Monica, Calif., is the No. 31 player in his class. Both he and Williams signed with Arizona back in November, but inked non-binding financial aid paperwork so they can still sign elsewhere if they so choose.

They are the only two signees in Arizona’s class, which ranks 34th in the country.

 

Arizona has signed 23 McDonald’s All-Americans with Deandre Ayton being the most recent one. The boys’ game will tip at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
