High School Basketball: McDonald's All-American Portraits Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Jarred Vanderbilt has been outstanding in the All-Star circuit. The 6’9” forward, who is a Kentucky commit, has been back at 100 percent and he’s shown it in these All-Star games/practices. He had a 19 and 10 double-double in the Nike Hoop Summit USA vs. World game Friday night, which made him the game’s leader in both points and rebounds. It also helped him lead his team to a 98-87.
