UK Signees Keldon Johnson & Tyler Herro make Nike Hoop Summit Roster


After much speculation, it’s now official: Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro will play in the 2018 Nike Hoop Summit.

Johnson and Herro are two of 12 that will represent the USA in the 21st Nike Hoop Summit.  The game will be played in Portland on Friday, April the 13th.  You can watch all of the action on ESPN2 at 10:00 ET after the Kentucky football spring game.

Before Kentucky’s dynamic duo arrives in Oregon, Johnson and Herro will play in the Jordan Brand Classic on April 8.  Johnson will also play in the McDonald’s All-American Game on March 28 alongside Immanuel Quickley.

    Is Quickley not playing in the Hoop Summit?

      He is not playing in the Nike Hoop Summit. Worth noting he played for an Adidas team in AAU.

      He’s not. If you are not the on the NIKE EYBL circuit you have basically no chance of making the Hoop summit game unless you are top 5 player. None of the fringe Adidas or Under Armour guys make it.
