They're not teammates just yet, but Saturday night will be the first chance for University of Kentucky basketball fans to watch Nerlens Noel, Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress on the same court since Noel's big signing-day announcement.

The trio of UK signees will be taking part in the Jordan Brand Classic high school all-star game at Charlotte, N.C. Noel will represent the East squad. Goodwin and Poythress will play for the West.

Those three might not be the only future Cats in the game, as forward Anthony Bennett of Nevada's Findlay Prep is still undecided, with Kentucky high on his list of schools.

North Carolina and Arizona also have three signees in Saturday's game. UCLA and Providence have two each.

Bennett and center Tony Parker of Lithonia, Ga., are the only two players in Saturday's game who have not announced their college choices.

Bennett has narrowed his list to UK, Florida, UNLV, Oregon and Washington, with the Cats and Gators thought to be the two favorites. He has said that he plans to visit all five schools before making his decision.

Parker is considering seven schools: Duke, Georgetown, Georgia, Kansas, Memphis, Ohio State and UCLA.
