Gonzaga class of 2020 commits Dominick Harris, Julian Strawther and Jalen Suggs have been nominated for the McDonald’s All-American game.

The three, who are close friends and have dubbed themselves the “Tricky Trio,” are among 900-plus boys and girls nominated for the prestigious all-star games. Twelve-player rosters for the West and East teams will be announced later this month.

Gonzaga is No. 7 in 247sports’ 2020 team rankings. Suggs, a 6-foot-4 guard from Minneapolis, is No. 10 in 247sports’ composite rankings. Harris, a 6-4 combo guard at Rancho Christian High in Temecula, California, is No. 62, and Strawther, a 6-7 wing at Liberty High in Henderson, Nevada, is No. 64.

Harris, who orally committed to Gonzaga as a sophomore in January 2018, and Strawther, who committed last April, signed letters of intent in November. Suggs, who reportedly is still considering professional options, committed to the Zags earlier this month. He can’t officially sign until April.

Minnehaha (9-2) is No. 13 and Rancho Christian (16-3) is No. 16 in MaxPreps.com’s latest top 25.

Gonzaga freshman forwards Anton Watson and Drew Timme were nominated for last year’s game but didn’t make the final 24-player roster.
