Aminu, Singleton named McDonald's All-Americans

Two Atlanta basketball stars were named to the 2008 McDonald's All-American game on Tuesday night. Norcross forward Al-Farouq Aminu and Dunwoody forward Chris Singleton were two of the 24 players announced for the annual post season all-star game on March 26 in Milwaukee.

Aminu, a 6-foot-8 forward for the two-time defending 5A state champions, is having the best season of any senior in Georgia this year for the Blue Devils. He signed a National Letter of Intent with Wake Forest last fall.

Singleton, also a 6-foot-8 forward, is one of the toughest players to defend in the Peach State because of his inside-out capabilities and overall skill set. The Dunwoody big man signed with Florida State in the fall.
