Kentucky fans will get a glimpse of the future when four incoming freshmen take the floor at the McDonald’s All-American Game Wednesday night in Chicago.
Point guard De’Aaron Fox, shooting guard Malik Monk, power forward Edrice “Bam” Adebayo and power forward Sacha Killeya-Jones are all ranked within the top 26 prospects in the Class of 2016. The future of Kentucky hoops took a picture together inside the United Center and took a jab at in-state rival, Louisville.

Fox, Adebayo and Killeya-Jones will be playing together on the East team, making Monk the lone Big Blue commit on the West roster. Kentucky’s fifth five-star recruit, Wenyen Gabriel, isn’t in Chicago for the game. Gabriel is rated the No. 13 player nationally.
Big Blue Nation is hoping this incredible recruiting class will help propel Kentucky back into the Final Four after losing in the second round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament. The McDonald’s All-American Game will be televised on ESPN at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday.
