Washington incoming freshman Nigel Williams-Goss (right) is one of 24 players picked to play in the McDonald’s All-American game.

The 6:30 p.m. PT game is April 3 at the United Center in Chicago and will be televised on ESPN.

The 6-4, 185-pound senior has led Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.) to a 27-0 record and a No. 1 ranking, according to USA Today. He’s averaging 18 points, 7.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds.

There’s just three Pac-12 players in the McDonald’s game including Rondae Jefferson (Arizona) and Jabari Bird (California). Here’s a look at the roster.

Williams-Goss is the fifth UW signee to play in the prestigious game since coach Lorenzo Romar arrived in 2002. The others include Abdul Gaddy (2009), Spencer Hawes (2006), Jon Brockman (2005) and Martell Webster (2005). Webster never enrolled at Washington.

San Jose star Aaron Gordon was also tabbed a McDonald’s All-American. The 6-8 forward is one of three players in the game who is still undecided about where he’ll play next season. He’s considering Washington, Arizona, Oregon and Kentucky.

Williams-Goss will also play in the acclaimed Jordan Brand Classic, which is April 13 in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
