Jamie Dixon continues to recruit at a high level for his TCU Horned Frogs Basketball program, inking a top 40 class in 2018, headlined by four star recruit Kaden Archie. The 6’6” small forward out of Midlothian, TX, chose to stay close to home after averaging 18.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.5 assists as a senior.
Now, Archie has been selected as one of the nation’s top seniors to participate in the eighth annual Ballislife All-American Game, presented by Eastbay.
The game takes place this Saturday, May 5th, at Cerritos College in Southern California. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00pm and the contest will be streamed free on Facebook Live, DailyMotion.com, YouTube, and Twitter.
According to a press release:
The Ballislife All-American Game was created in 2011 with the goal to bring a credible All-American type event to the West Coast with the goal of selecting the most deserving players regardless of geography, mainstream player rankings, or shoe affiliation. Past BIL A-A participants include 2018 NBA Draft Lottery candidates Collin Sexton (Alabama), Trae Young (Oklahoma) and Mo Bamba (Texas) and NBA Rookie of the Year candidates Donovan Mitchell (Jazz) and Lonzo Ball (Lakers).
Archie is an exciting piece to add to a TCU team that made the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 20 years this past season, losing in the opener to Syracuse. After being picked as high as third in the conference prior to the start of last season, the expectations are even higher in Fort Worth for this fall.
