Clemson 2009 basketball signee Milton Jennings has been chosen for the McDonald’s All-American game.

Jennings is the first Clemson signee selected since 1991 when Sharone Wright was chosen. Overall, he is just the fourth Clemson signee selected for the game that began in 1979.

This year’s McDonald’s All-American came will be played at 8:00 PM on April 1 at UnitedBank Arena in Miami, FL.

Jennings is the only high school player from the state of South Carolina in this year’s game and is the first South Carolina player to play in the game since 2002 when Raymond Felton was selected.

The 6-9 forward is averaging 22.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this year for Pinewood Prep in Summerville, SC. He recently went over 2500 points for his career and has led his team to a 25-5 record so far this year. His team has already won three consecutive SCISA Class AAA State Championships and will seek a fourth in March.

Jennings is the third Clemson signee to be chosen to the McDonald’s All-America game. The others are Clarke Bynum (1980) and Sharone Wright (1991). Wright won the three-point shooting contest at the 1991 McDonald’s All-American game, then never made a three-point goal in his Clemson career. Michael Brown, who played for the Tigers during the 1986-87, was selected for the game out of high school, but enrolled at Syracuse before transferring to Clemson.

Jennings is a consensus top 30 national player this year. He is ranked 23rd by Scout.com and 26th by ESPN.com.
