After months of speculation, the 2014 McDonald’s All-American Game rosters were revealed on Wednesday evening and Maryland commit Romelo Trimble had a reason to smile.
Trimble will play for the East team in the annual high school all-star game that will take place on April 2 in Chicago. The do-it-all guard was one of 24 players selected to participate in the game. He also was the first DMV area player since fellow Bishop O’Connell guard Kendall Marshall was selected to appear in the game in 2010.
Trimble is coming off of a spectacular season in both the high school and AAU circuits. He led Bishop O’Connell to the WCAC championship and led D.C. Assault to tournament championships in nearly every AAU tournament that he participated in. Trimble also played in the Under Armour Elite 24 game.
The O’Connell guard is currently ranked as the 35th best recruit in the country, according to 24/7 Sports. Trimble had offers from nearly every team under the sun, but chose to commit to coach Mark Turgeon and his staff in December 2012.
Fellow Terrapin commits Dion Wiley (Potomac) and Trayvon Reed (Life Center Academy) were also nominated for the game, but were not selected.
