This year’s McDonald’s All-American Games feature a lot of high school basketball talent.

It also features a lot of future college basketball stars who will play in the Bluegrass next season.

The team from the Bluegrass with the most connections in the game is the Kentucky men’s basketball team.

Four future Wildcats, Quade Green, P.J. Washington, Jarred Vanderbilt and Nick Richards are each on the East Team in the boys’ game on Wednesday.

The future teammates are already seeing that Quade Green could very well be a team leader on the Cats next season:

Also playing in the boys’ game Wednesday night will be WKU signee Mitchell Robinson.

Like, the future Wildcats, Robinson will be playing on the East Team Wednesday night.

The boys’ game will tip-off at 7 p.m. ET inside Chicago’s United Center on Wednesday.

On the girls’ side, there are two future Louisville Cardinals playing in the McDonald’s All-American Game on Wednesday. Dana Evans and Loretta Kakala will each take part in the contest, which begins at 5 p.m. ET inside the United Center. During Media Day on Tuesday, they discussed what their roles may look like next season at UofL:
