Two Kentucky signees named McDonald’s All-Americans

Two Kentucky signees were named McDonald’s All-Americans this afternoon. Point guard Immanuel Quickley and shooting guard Keldon Johnson will represent Kentucky at the all-star game in Atlanta on March 28.

Quickley will be on the East team, along with Zion Williamson, who will announce his decision Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. Johnson will be on the West team. Unfortunately, Tyler Herro did not make the cut despite late consideration. Here are both rosters:

    Hopefully either Montgomery or Williamson make that three.

    I have forgotten why was Wall not a Mickey D’s All-American?

    1. Bobbum Man

      I believe Wall was a 5th year senior

    2. BIGTUK96

      It’s because he had already signed up to play in the Elite 24, Nike Hoop Summit, and Jordan Brand Classic Game and you can only play in 3 all star games.

    3. FlatTopsAndBlockedShots

      John Wall was a 5th year senior, Wenyen Gabriel was a post grad (5th year) which is why he wasn’t included as well. There is no limit to the on the all-star games, Julius Randle played in the Elite 24 in the summer of 2012 and played in all three post season all-star games in spring of 2013 being the McDonald’s All-American Game, Jordan Brand Classic, and the Nike Hoop Summit on team USA.

    BBN go give Tyler Herro some love on Twitter. He’s getting crushed by Wisonsin fans making fun of him for not making it.

      I would think Wisky fans would have better things to do….like watching their team get destroyed by Purdue.

    Apparently all of Wisconsin hates him for flipping to UK.
