By Bill Paterson

Former Sacramento High star Josiah Turner, now playing for a school in North Carolina, was passed over for the McDonald's All-American game scheduled for March 30 in Chicago.

Turner, now playing for Quality Education Academy of Winston-Salem, N.C., was the highest ranked player (No. 10) not selected, according to Jerry Meyer of Rivals.com.

Turner's Oakland Soldiers AAU teammates Jabari Brown (No. 22) of Oakland High and Nick Johnson (No. 40) of Findlay Prep of Henderson, Nev., also were not among the 24 players selected. But Soldiers teammate Kyle Wiltjer (No. 25) of Portland, Ore., did get picked to play for the West team.

Turner and Johnson have signed with Arizona, Brown with Oregon and Wiltjer with Kentucky.
