Three future Kentucky Wildcats were named to All-USA basketball teams by USA Today.

P.J. Washington, the 6’8, 229 pound forward, landed on the second team, while the backcourt duo of Quade Green and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander were named to the third team.

USA Today comprises three teams made up of five players each for their All-America teams.

Gilgeous-Alexander has been a little out of the spotlight, as he is not with fellow UK commits at the McDonald’s All-American game, but he will play in the Nike Hoops Summit for the World Team (he is originally from Canada) on April 7 in Portland. Green and Kentucky signee Nick Richards will also play in that game.

As for the rest of the USA Today selections, the first team is listed as:

F Marvin Bagley, III, Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.)

G Trevon Duval, IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.)
