It is a recorded setting day for Kentucky as five of its recruits are officially named to the McDonald’s All American Game roster.
Dakari Johnson represents Kentucky on the East.
Kentucky surpasses its previous record of four McDonald’s All Americans in 2011. Michigan in 1991 and Duke in 1999 have also had four recruits play in the game.
Even more remarkable is that two uncommitted prospects out of the top five of the Top147 were named to the team, and Kentucky is in play for those two recruits. Julius Randle, who missed the roster because of injury, is also a potential Kentucky recruit.
