Mercer County standout Trevon Faulkner, this year’s Mr. Basketball winner, was an automatic selection.
Eric “Boss” Boone, who played at Bryan Station and was a Mr. Basketball finalist, Scott County standout Cooper Robb, who’s signed with Charlotte, and Carter Hendricksen, a North Florida signee, were all selected out of the 11th Region.
Among the notable names absent were Covington Catholic’s CJ Fredrick, an Iowa signee who was named Sweet Sixteen MVP after leading CovCath to a state title in March, and Jake Walter, who’s signed with Xavier. Trinity’s Jay Scrubb, the Mr. Basketball finalist out of the 7th Region, and Christian County standout Detorrion Ware, the 2nd Region Player of the Year, also were not among the selections. None of those players were on a roster in the KABC East-West All-Star game, indicating that they liekly decided to not participate in the tryouts (they were all invited according to a list released by the KABC).
