McDonald's All American Game 2011: Fitchburg's Khem Birch To Participate In Dunk Contest, All-American Game

Khem Birch, a student at Notre Dame Prep School in Fitchburg, Mass., will be participating in the 2011 McDonald's All American Game and the Powerade Jam Fest, the of which takes place Monday night at Chicago State University and will be broadcast on ESPN2 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Birch, who committed to attend the University of Pittsburgh back in September, will also be playing for the West team in the McDonald's All American game on Wednesday, March 30, at 10 p.m. (ESPN) at the United Center in Chicago. The complete roster for both the West and East teams can be viewed here.

A 6'9", 210-pound power forward/center born in Montreal, Quebec, Birch is widely considered one of the nation's top high school basketball players. He is the top-ranked player at his position and is ranked 11th overall in the ESPNU 100, which ranks the best high school players in the nation (more of Birch's strengths and weaknesses according to ESPN).

Rivals.com also lists Birch as the top ranked player at his position but has him listed as the fourth-best high school basketball player in the country. 

If you haven't heard his name already, you will most likely be hearing a lot about Birch in the coming months and years. Both ESPN and Rivals.com are very high on Birch, believing that he could one day be a star in the NBA.
