ESPN aired the 2023 class of McDonald's All-Americans on Tuesday, and now we'll break down the East and West rosters.

Four of the 12 players on the West roster are from California, and two of those four are from La Jolla Country Day

West

KK Arnold, Germantown (Wisconsin)

Arnold is as consistent as they come, as the reigning Wisconsin Gatorade Player of the Year is putting up nearly identical stats compared with her junior season. The 5-foot-9 UConn commit recently put up 27 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists in a game and is averaging 23.6, 6.8 and 7.4 this season, respectively.

Sofia Bell, Jesuit (Oregon)

Bell filled up the stat sheet last week with 27 points, five rebounds, five assists and a pair of steals in a 67-39 victory over Jefferson. Bell, a four-star Oregon signee, is averaging 19.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 3.6 steals as a senior.

Madison Booker, Germantown (Mississippi)

Booker averaged 16.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.1 steals in 28 games last season, leading Germantown to the state semifinals. The five-star, 6-foot-1 wing has been even better this year, averaging 19 points, 7.8 rebounds, three assists and 2.6 steals per game. 

Addy Brown, Derby (Kansas)

A 6-foot-3 forward who can play anywhere from the point to the post if needed, Brown is averaging 20.2 points, 10.1 rebounds and four assists per game this season. She's committed to play for Iowa State next season.

Breya Cunningham, La Jolla Country Day (California)

One of the most dominant post players in the country, Cunningham will be playing for Arizona next season. Few can match the 6-foot-4 center's strength inside, and she's averaging 19.1 points, 10 rebounds and 2.9 blocks playing one of the toughest schedules in the country.

Kymora Johnson, Saint Anne's-Belfield (Virginia)

The defending Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year has been a double-figures scorer at the varsity level since she was an eighth-grader. She's committed to stay close to home and play for Virginia next season. 

Tessa Johnson, Saint Michael Albertville (Minnesota)

Johnson is averaging 23.8 points per game this season, including a 51-point game against a very good Chaska team, breaking the St. Michael-Albertville record for points in a game. The 5-foot-10 guard will be joining South Carolina's star-studded freshman class next season.

Amanda Muse, Heritage (California)

A Brentwood native, Muse is staying close to home after signing with UCLA. The 6-foot-4 post averaged 17.1 points, 10 rebounds and 4.2 blocks in an abbreviated junior year and eclipsed 1,000 career points this year. Muse and her family have several close ties to the UCLA basketball program.
