When the McDonald's All-American Game tips off at 9:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, all eyes will be on a slew of future Kentucky Wildcats dotting this year's roster. A record six Kentucky commitments will participate in the game, and the nation's No. 1 player is still considering the Wildcats as well.

Those six players highlight what many consider to be the greatest high school class ever assembled. All six are rated amongst the top 18 players in ESPNU's Top 150, and five are in the top 11. That includes the nation's top-ranked point guard (Houston-area guard Andrew Harrison), the top-ranked shooting guard (Andrew's twin brother Aaron), the top-ranked power forward (Dallas' Julius Randle) and the nation's No. 1 ranked center, too, Dakari Johnson of Brooklyn.

Fellow Kentucky commitments, Michigan forward James Young and California big-man Marcus Lee will also both participate in Wednesday's game.

What's scary for the rest of college basketball though, is that John Calipari is still actively recruiting the nation's No. 1 ranked overall player, forward Andrew Wiggins. The 6'7 Wiggins is strongly considering Kentucky along with Florida State, Kansas and North Carolina as well.
