Kentucky's streak of having at least one player in the annual McDonald's All-American Game continues dating all the way back to 2009. The 2024 All-American Game roster has been announced and both Jayden Quaintance and Boogie Fland have been selected to play in the prestigious game. Those two are the only Kentucky signees who were chosen in the final selection.

They will be the 47th and 48th players to play in the McDonald's All-American Game under John Calipari at Kentucky. Also, Karter Knox (the brother of former Kentucky player Kevin Knox) was also selected to participate in the All-American Game. Kentucky is a finalist in his recruitment so if he does decide to attend Kentucky then that will bring the total to 49 players under Calipari in his sixteen years of recruiting classes at Kentucky.

Last year's Kentucky recruits that played in the McDonald's All-American Game were DJ Wagner, Aaron Bradshaw, Justin Edwards, and Reed Sheppard. Robert Dillingham was deemed ineligible by the selection committee due to OTE (Overtime Elite) not meeting the event's criteria. Karter Knox breaks through that barrier though as he is OTE's first product to be named a McDonald's All-American. Somto Cyril, also a Kentucky commit, was not eligible because of him being a prior graduate. Also both Billy Richmond and Travis Perry - both 4-star guards - did not make the 24-man roster.
