In my experience the McDonalds's All American nomination process is pretty wide open. Not a lot of selectivity in that round.

From the website on the process

The Search Begins
The initial list of potential names is gathered by Sports America, Inc., which has worked with McDonald’s in connection with the McDonald’s All American Game since it was founded in 1978. Names are submitted by members of the Selection Committee as well as state representatives who religiously follow the prep scene in their areas. In addition, Sports America subscribes to every major basketball publication and is read very carefully by its staff to ensure that some deserving players are not overlooked. Many rising seniors make this list based on an excellent junior year or for having an outstanding summer participating in summer camps and AAU tournaments. There is no set number of how many players can be nominated throughout the country. Traditionally, the final total is between 1,500 to 1,800 for boys and 900 to 1,200 for girls.
