Kentwood's Joshua Smith on McDonald's All-American Game roster | Boys basketball

Joshua Smith of state champion Kentwood will play for the West team Wednesday in the McDonald's All-American Game in Columbus, Ohio.

Joshua Smith, who led Kentwood High School to the Class 4A state boys basketball championship this month, will face even bigger competition Wednesday in the McDonald's All-American Game in Columbus, Ohio.

The boys all-star game, televised on ESPN, is scheduled to tip off at 5 p.m. PDT. A girls game will start at 2:30 p.m. on ESPNU. No girls from Washington were selected for the game.

Smith, a 6-foot-9 senior who has signed with UCLA, is the top-ranked center in the nation, according to ESPN Rise.

Smith will be joined on the West squad by another Northwest player, 6-9 forward Terrence Jones of Portland's Jefferson High. Jones remains uncommitted, but has narrowed his finalists to Kentucky, Oklahoma, UCLA, Washington and Oregon.

The McDonald's game will be the first of two high-profile national all-star events for Smith, who is also committed to play in the Jordan Brand Classic April 17 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
