The nation’s top high school basketball seniors will be in action on Wednesday during the annual McDonald’s All-American Game in Chicago.
Kentucky will have two signees participating in the game: guard Archie Goodwin and forward Alex Poythress. Goodwin is the more highly-rated player of the two, and he’s shown this week why Rivals considers him the nation’s 12th-best prospect for the class of 2012.
Just talked to NBA guy at McDonald’s All-American practice. Was impressed with Shabazz Muhammad, Brandon Ashley (AZ) & Archie Goodwin (UK).

Muhammad is another Kentucky target, although many believe UCLA leads for the forward from Las Vegas. He’s expected to announce his college decision on April 10.
Kentucky will be the only SEC school with signed or committed players in Wednesday’s game. That could change with a few players, including center Tony Parker and forward Devonta Pollard, undecided on their college decisions.
