LEANDER, Texas — Five-star prospect Greg Brown, a senior at Vandegrift High School, was named a McDonald's All-American on Thursday – one of the most prestigious honors that could be bestowed upon a high school basketball player.

Brown was one of 24 players selected to the 43rd annual McDonald's All-American Game, which this year takes place in Houston on April 1.

In the 40+ years of its existence, 18 players who have gone on to play for Texas have competed in the game.
