Participants for this year’s McDonald’s All-American Games were announced Wednesday on a selections show on ESPNU, and four Kentucky Wildcats commits were selected to the game.

All four University of Kentucky men’s signees – Karl Towns Jr., Trey Lyles, Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker – were nominated for the game, and it comes as no surprise to see all four be named to the game. 

Indianapolis power forward Trey Lyles, New Jersey center Karl Towns Jr. are both consensus top-10 players in the senior class and Mississippi shooting guard Devin Booker and Chicago point guard Tyler Ullis are also among the best players at their respective positions.

All four players are having outstanding high school seasons and could end up seeing their current rankings rise even higher when the final class of 2014 rankings are released.

It’s also worth noting that uncommitted UK targets Myles Turner and Rashad Vaughn also made the game. Turner is a long-shot to land at UK at this point, but Vaughn is still being heavily pursued by John Calipari and his staff as they look to lock-up a top-five class.

The games will be played on April 2 at the United Center in Chicago and be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
