Golden Arches All Americans

Two future Horns, Kevin Durant and D.J. Augustin, were named McDonald's All Americans on Thursday. Durant is considered the second best high school player in the country and was a lock to be named to the team. Augustin's selection comes as more of a surprise.

The McDonald's All American game will be March 29th 9 PM CST from San Diego. The dunk and three point contests will take place two nights earlier on March 27th 9 PM CST. Both future Longhorns will play for the West team. Darrell Arthur, the top player in the country who has not yet signed a letter of intent, was also named a McDonald's All American and will play with Durant and Augustin on the West. Although Kansas is thought to be Arthur's top choice, Texas still has a shot. Arthur is from Dallas and is rumored to be coming to Austin for Saturday night's game with the Jawhawks.

 The Horns are among a few schools with multiple players among the 24 selected.

Ohio State & North Carolina: 3 players each
Georgia Tech, Duke, Texas, Stanford: 2 players each
Arizona, Washington, UCLA, Georgetown, Baylor, Kansas, Oklahoma, Louisville: 1 player each.
Undecided: 2 players (Darrell Arthur and Lance Thomas)
