The nominees for the 2013 McDonald’s All-American Game were released today and, to no one’s surprise, all six of UK’s 2013 commitments were among the 800 players nominated. Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison, James Young, Marcus Lee and Dakari Johnson are expected to be named to the All-Star game.

Kentucky’s other incoming freshman, Bullitt East’s Derek Willis, was one of ten Kentucky high school players nominated by the committee. The others are William Gary (Dunbar), Taylor Glover (Pulaski County), Dominique Hawkins (Madison Central), Darryl Hicks (Trinity), Lavonne Holland (Ballard), Jack Whitman (Lexington Catholic), Omar Prewitt (Montgomery County), Mike Smith (Dunbar) and Rusty Troutman (Bullitt East).

The game will be played April 3 at the United Center in Chicago.
