The Jordan Brand Classic roster was released today and two Kentucky Wildcats made the list. Tyler Herro and Keldon Johnson will both suit up for the Away Team.

All of the Duke Blue Devil commits are on the opposite team. Barf.

Keldon Johnson is John Calipari’s highest ranked recruit of the 2018 class. ESPN has the wing ranked as the 6th best player in the class.

Tyler Herro has been a scoring machine this season and earned a fifth star from ESPN. He is up to the 25th best player in the class.

Noticeably absent from the roster is point guard Immanuel Quickley. The 6-3 point guard will play in the McDonald’s All American Game but will not participate in the Jordan Brand Classic.

The Jordan Brand Classic has been good to Kentucky recruits in the past. Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox shared MVP honors in 2016 while Julius Randle (2013) and Anthony Davis (2011) both received MVP honors as well.

The game will take place on Sunday, April 8th.
