Demetrius Jackson: McDonald's All-American...

Notre Dame signee Demetrius Jackson is spending his spring break in Chicago this week preparing for Wednesday's McDonald's All-America Game.

Jackson, who averaged 29 points per game at Mishawaka (Ind.) Marian High School in his senior season, is the first Irish player to play in the annual all-star game since Luke Zeller in 2005. The future Irish point guard won the McDonald's skills competition Monday night. The last Notre Dame commit to do that was Torin Francis in 2002, the first year of the contest.

Jackson will play guard for the East All-Star team Wednesday night in Chicago's United Center. The game is scheduled to begin around 9:30 p.m. eastern time and will be televised on ESPN. Check back with BlueandGold.com later tonight to read more about Jackson's experience in Chicago this week.
