Parkway’s Mikaylah Williams, considered one of the top two high school girls basketball players in the country, has been selected to the West roster of the 2023 McDonald’s All American Game according to an announcement Tuesday.

Williams, a 6-foot guard and the consensus No. 2 prospect in the 2023 graduating class, has signed to play for LSU. Tigers coach Kim Mulkey and assistant Bob Starkey attended a home game last week to watch their top recruit in action.

She is one of 24 players named to play in the game slated for March 28 at the Toyota Center in Houston at 6:30 p.m. (ET). It will be broadcast live on ESPN2.

She has played for the United States in summer competition for the past two years.

Williams will be joined on the West roster in Houston by No. 1 prospect JuJu Watkins of Sierra Canyon, California.
