Under John Calipari, the Kentucky Wildcats are used to having players named to the McDonald’s All-American team, as well as the Jordan Brand Classic.
Due to the current pandemic, the showcases will not be played in 2021.
However, the rosters are still being announced for each game so high school players are still honored.
On Saturday, the rosters for the 2021 Jordan Brand Classic were announced, and three future Cats made the roster.
Former Kentucky commit and now Gonzaga pledge Nolan Hickman was also named to the roster.

Having players named to these showcases is nothing new to Kentucky, but all three of these incoming Cats are well deserving of this honor that will honor raise the excitement level for them heading into next season.
