McDonald's All-American Game 2012: West Roster Includes MIssouri Interest Devonta Pollard

The East roster of the 2012 McDonald’s All-American Game features one local recruit for Kansas in Perry Ellis, a power forward who will be an impact player for the Jayhawks. But Missouri is also chasing a player currently undecided for the West roster in Devonta Pollard, bringing local interest to the West roster as well.

The 6-7 small forward from Mississippi gets high marks from ESPN’s scouting services. They summarize his game with the following: “There is no questioning this guys upside or love to play the game. Every time he steps on the floor you know you get his best. He has the kind of athleticism and length to be a major contributor at the next level, not to mention great bloodlines from his mother who was a tremendous player.”
