KU signee Cole Aldrich will participate in the McDonald's All America Game in March. This honor is quite an accomplishment for Aldrich, who played through injuries last summer and slipped on the polls of some pundits. At one time, Aldrich was universally recognized as the top center prospect in the 2007 class, but he dropped on most scouting lists. On Scout.com, he fell to fourth, behind, among others, DeAndre Jordan. Jordan didn't make the McD's roster. Aldrich has had a strong senior year, apparently demonstrating that he is still a dominant center in the eyes of the selection committee. Scout.com national recruiting director Dave Telep praised Aldrich for his work ethic and demonstrated improvement. "At Kansas I expect him compete for playing time, slide right into Self's offensive style and eventually be an anchor inside for the Jayhawks," Telep wrote.
This truly is a "Super-Sized" honor!
