Four Kentucky Wildcats signees selected for McDonald's All-American Game

Kentucky will have four members of its top-rated 2016 basketball recruiting class featured in this year's McDonald's All-American Game.

Edrice "Bam" Adebayo, De'Aaron Fox, Malik Monk and Sacha Killeya-Jones (pictured above) were all tabbed to play in the prestigious event with rosters announced Sunday night. Adebayo, Fox and Killeya-Jones will play for the East squad, while Monk will play for the West.

The game will be held March 30 at the United Center in Chicago and televised by ESPN.


Kentucky's other two 2016 signees, Wenyen Gabriel (a fifth-year high school senior) and Tai Wynyard (an early enrollee now at UK) were not eligible for the game.

The Wildcats have had 25 players named McDonald's All-Americans under John Calipari, more than any other school in the country during the last seven years. Kentucky has signed 57 McDonald's All-Americans since the team was first named in 1977.

Last week, Adebayo, Fox and Monk were named to the Jordan Brand Classic game to be played April 15 in Brooklyn, N.Y.
