The University of Kentucky will once again be represented in both of the McDonald's All-American games in Chicago.
UK men's signee Isaiah Briscoe and women's signee Taylor Murray have been chosen for the games, which will both be played April 1 at the United Center.
Briscoe, a 6-foot-3 guard from New Jersey, will be joined by all eight of the uncommitted high school seniors with scholarship offers from UK: Jaylen Brown, Thomas Bryant, Cheick Diallo, Brandon Ingram, Malik Newman, Ivan Rabb, Caleb Swanigan and Stephen Zimmerman.
Brown, Bryant and Diallo will play alongside Briscoe on the East team.
Never miss a local story.
John Calipari's two other signees so far from the class of 2015 — Charles Matthews and Skal Labissiere — will not be playing in the game.
Matthews, a Chicago native, was nominated but not selected for the showcase despite a stellar senior season. Labissiere was not nominated for the game after being ruled ineligible by the Tennessee high school athletics association over a transfer dispute.
Calipari has had 21 McDonald's All-Americans since coming to UK in 2009, and that number is likely to grow in the coming weeks as the uncommitted players in this year's game make their college decisions.
Murray, a 5-6 point guard from Odenton, Md., will be UK's lone representative in the girls' game. Kentuckians Maci Morris and Morgan Rich were also nominated but did not make the cut. Fellow signee Batouly Camara was not nominated because she is a fifth-year prep player, the same rule that kept UK's John Wall out of the game in 2009.
All 24 players in the girls' game have committed to a school.
This will be the sixth straight year that UK Coach Matthew Mitchell will have at least one recruit in the McDonald's Game. Alyssa Rice represented the Wildcats in 2014.
