UK signees to play in McDonald’s All-America game

LEXINGTON, Ky. – After earning selection to the Jordan Brand Classic earlier in the week, four Kentucky men’s basketball signees have been tabbed to the McDonald’s All-America Game set to take place April 3 in Chicago at the United Center.

UK Fall signees, Aaron Harrison (Ft. Bend, Texas), Andrew Harrison (Ft. Bend, Texas), Marcus Lee (Antioch, Calif.) and James Young (Rochester, Mich.) were chosen to take part in the annual event that has featured some of the best basketball talent in the country since 1978.

All four players will suit up for the West team.

Andrew Harrison is rated as the No. 3 overall player and the top point guard in the 2013 class by ESPN. Aaron Harrison holds the No. 5 spot with Young coming in at No. 6. Harrison and Young are one-and-two in the shooting guard rankings, respectively. Lee has been tabbed at No. 30 overall and 11th at his power forward position.
Kentucky has signed 34 total McDonald’s All-Americans, including 14 under John Calipari, since the McDonald’s All-America team began in 1977 with the first game featuring the top players in the nation first played in 1978.
