Kentucky set a Jordan Brand Classic record Tuesday when five future Wildcats were selected for this year’s game.
UK could even add to that record in the coming weeks.
Aaron Harrison, Andrew Harrison, Dakari Johnson, Marcus Lee and James Young were all chosen to participate in the 2013 Jordan Brand Classic, to be played April 13 in Brooklyn, N.Y. It’s the first time five recruits from one school have been named to the event.
Three prospects whom UK is still recruiting — Aaron Gordon, Julius Randle and Andrew Wiggins — also were selected. They are the only uncommitted players in the game.
Kentucky has had 23 Jordan Brand selections since the game’s inception in 2002. Eighteen of those have come since John Calipari arrived in Lexington in 2009.
EAST ROSTER: Tyler Ennis (Syracuse), Aaron Harrison (Kentucky), Kasey Hill (Florida), Kuran Iverson (Memphis), Rondae Jefferson (Arizona), Kennedy Meeks (North Carolina), Bobby Portis (Arkansas), Julius Randle (uncommitted), Wayne Selden (Kansas), Chris Walker (Florida), Andrew Wiggins (uncommitted).
WEST ROSTER: Joel Embiid (Kansas), Aaron Gordon (uncommitted), Andrew Harrison (Kentucky), Dakari Johnson (Kentucky), Matt Jones (Duke), Marcus Lee (Kentucky), Jabari Parker (Duke), Noah Vonleh (Indiana), Troy Williams (Indiana), Nigel Williams-Goss (Washington), James Young (Kentucky)
