Incoming 2020 guard Jalen Suggs has been named a McDonald’s All American (although according to the Mickey D’s website he is still uncommitted).

Suggs is the 10th ranked player in the class of 2020 according to 247 Sports, and is one-third of the “tricky trio” of highly-ranked recruits, including fellow McD All-American nominees Dominick Harris and Julian Strawther.

Suggs is the highest-ranked prospect in Gonzaga history, and is their second McDonald’s All-American recruit, following in the footsteps of Zach Collins. (Yes, I know Kyle Wiltjer, Nigel Williams-Goss and Micah Downs all were also McDonald’s All-Americans, but they transferred into Gonzaga.) Either way, his inclusion in the McDonald’s All-American game is a big deal. Gonzaga’s class of 2020 was already legit, but now we can start to pile on the insane expectations.
