Rising Canadian stud Caleb Houstan (Mississauga, Ont.) has been selected to the 2021 McDonald’s All-American Game.

The Michigan Wolverines commit becomes the first Canadian to be selected since fellow Monteverde alumni RJ Barrett and Simisola Shittu were selected in 2018.

The all-star showcase has a long tradition with Canadian representation with names like Bill Wennington (1981), Barry Bekkedam (1986), Olu Famutimi (2003), Cory Joseph (2010), Tristan Thompson (2010), Khem Birch (2011), Myck Kabongo (2011), Kyle Wiltjer (2011), Anthony Bennett (2012), Andrew Wiggins (2013), Trey Lyles (2014) showcasing their skills over the years.

Houstan, a consensus five-star recruit is the highest rated recruit committed to Michigan since Glenn Robinson III in 2012. The six-foot-eight, small forward has all the necessary tools to become Canada’s next potential big star.

The recently turned 18-year-old (January 9, 2003) led Canada to a silver medal at the 2019 FIBA U16 Americas Championships in Brazil with a record of 5-1. Houstan finished the tournament as the second leading scorer with averages of 23 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2 assists and 1.7 steals.
