Another day, another accolade for Kentucky’s 2018 signees. Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro were just named to the Jordan Brand Classic, which takes place April 8 at the Barclays Center in New York.

It’s worth noting that Quickley played on the adidas AAU circuit, which may be why he also didn’t make the Nike Hoop Summit, while Johnson and Herro, who played on the Nike EYBL circuit, did.
Here’s the complete Jordan Brand Classic roster:
