Several UK targets named McDonald's All-Americans

The 2010 McDonald's All-American teams were announced Thursday and several Kentucky targets made the cut.

Brandon Knight, Terrence Jones, C.J. Leslie, Doron Lamb and Josh Selby were all selected. All five of those players are uncommitted and have UK among the final schools on their lists.

Knight, a 6-foot-3 point guard from Pine Crest, Fla., is the top-ranked high school player that has yet to choose a college. Rivals.com and MaxPreps.com rank him as the No. 1 player in the class of 2010, while Scout.com has him at No. 2 and ESPN.com at No. 3.

Jones, a 6-8 power forward, is ranked No. 13 overall by both Rivals.com and ESPN.com. The Portland, Ore., native is also considering Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA and Washington.

Leslie, John Wall's former teammate at Word of God Academy in North Carolina, is a 6-8 forward and a consensus top-20 recruit.

Lamb, a guard from Oak Hill Academy, is also considering Arizona, Kansas and West Virginia.

Selby, a point guard from Baltimore, is a consensus top-10 recruit considering several other schools.

The McDonald's All-American Game will be played on March 31 in Columbus and will be televised on ESPN.

Top prospects to visit UK on Saturday

Marquis Teague is among at least three top-10 prospects expected to attend the UK-Tennessee game on Saturday.

His father said Teague, a top-10 prospect in the class of 2011, would not attend the ESPN GameDay show that morning. Father and son would be driving from Indianapolis in time to attend the game.

Other top-10 prospects expected to attend the UK-Tennessee game are Adonis Thomas (class of 2011) and J.P. Tokoto (class of 2012), according to the recruiting service Scout.com.

Teague is a 6-2 point guard from Indianapolis. Thomas is a 6-6 swingman from Memphis. Tokoto is a 6-5 wing from Menomonee Falls, Wis.

Shawn Teague said his son was still considering Indiana, Purdue, Wake Forest, UK, Louisville, Cincinnati and Ohio State.

The elder Teague said his son wanted to concentrate on this high school season before turning his attention to recruiting.

Lamb, Gilchrist on TV

UK recruits Doron Lamb and Michael Gilchrist will face off on ESPNU at 9 p.m. Friday Night.

Lamb, one of the top 20 players in the class of 2010, will lead perennial powerhouse Oak Hill Academy. The 6-foot-4 guard is considered on of the best shooting guards in the class of 2010.

Gilchrist, the consensus No. 1 player in the class of 2011, will lead St. Patrick Academy (N.J.). Gilchrist, a 6-for-6 forward, is also considering Connecticut, Memphis and Villanova, among others.

Ex-UK recruit picks LSU

Former Kentucky commitment K.C. Ross-Miller has committed to LSU, according to several news outlets.

Ross-Miller was recruited by Billy Gillispie and committed to the Cats in July 2007 before starting his sophomore year of high school.

He reopened his recruitment after Gillispie left UK.

"I have the drive to do big things, and I want to come in and start and make a big impact as a true freshman," Ross-Miller told Scout.com. "I also want to be on a winning team, and I feel like LSU can provide that."
