03/19/2014 03:19 PM

The Kentucky Derby Classic rosters were released, Wednesday, and Louisville fans will be able to get a glimpse of some future Cards.

Ballard High senior and Kentucky Mr. Basketball, Quentin Snider, will play on the White Team. Snider will be alongside future teammates Jaylen Johnson and Chinanu Onuaku when the game tips on April 18th in Freedom Hall. The Green Team will feature Hoosier commits Robert Johnson and Max Hoetzel as well as former Louisville commit JaQuan Lyle.

The game includes 18 of the top 70 recruits in the 2015 class according to Scout.com. There are no UK recruits playing this year as all four future Cats, Devin Booker, Tyler Ulis, Trey Lyles and Karl Towns, have committed to playing in the McDonald’s All American Game and the Jordan Brand Classic. High school players are permitted to participate in only two post-season all-star events.
