The 2024 rosters were based on competitive criteria and chosen from a list of 729 nominees by some of the nation's top analysts, prep scouts, media and coaches. Since 1977, more than 1,600 players have donned the iconic McDonald's jersey, including names like Breanna Stewart, Kevin Durant, Candace Parker, Trae Young, Hannah Hidalgo, Reed Sheppard, and so many others.

Introducing the 23rd Class of All-Star Girls
The 2024 girls lineup features four players from California, the most represented state. This includes some of the area's top players such as Morgan Cheli (Archbishop Mitty High School – CA), Jordan Lee (Saint Mary's High School – CA), Mackenly Randolph (Sierra Canyon School – CA) and Kennedy Smith (Etiwanda High School – CA).

And to round out the roster, this squad will call on nationally ranked stars from across the county like Sarah Strong (Grace Christian School – NC), Joyce Edwards (Camden High School – SC) and Jaloni Cambridge (Montverde Academy – FL).

The Boys are Ready to Throw it Down
This year's 2024 boys lineup includes some of the game's elite talent, with five coming from California and another four from Florida.

From coast to coast, the rosters showcase incredible talent – with guys like Cooper Flagg (Montverde Academy – FL), Dylan Harper (Don Bosco Preparatory High School – NJ), Airious Bailey (McEachern High School – GA) and Valdez Edgecombe, Jr. (Long Island Lutheran High School – NY).
