Four Future Wildcats are Nominated to be McDonald’s All-Americans

Bam Adebayo, De’Aaron Fox, Sacha Killeya-Jones and Malik Monk were nominated to play in the McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago on March 30th.  The only 2016 signee that did not make the list, Wenyen Gabriel, is ineligible for nomination.  Taylor County’s Quentin Goodin was the only player from Kentucky to be nominated.

I would put the chances at all four making the game around 99.9%, which would give Calipari 25 McDonald’s All-Americans since 2009.  That’s an average of just over a three a year.  Not too shabby.

    And 1 National Championship as a result. That IS too shabby. At least 2 would be easier to stomach.

      What is the total number of Div I coaches who have completed at least one season in the past 7 years? How many have won a National Championship? How many coaches have even ONE SINGLE NC in careers spanning 20 years or more.

      Thanks for playing. Total fail.

      4KCATS, why not 3? Or 4? Or 5, and so on?. Being in the mix for a title on a regular basis is all any reasonable fan could hope for, and Cal has done that here from Day 1. If that’s too shabby for you… well, I don’t know what to tell you.

    Remember when we had only about one burger boy in about a seven year span under TLT and Billy Clyde (rough estimate)?

    Naw, me either.
