During a Sunday evening telecast on ESPNU, the complete rosters for the East and West teams ahead of the 39th annual McDonald's All-American Game were revealed.

Jeff Borzello of ESPN reported the news ahead of the All-Star showcase featuring the top high school basketball recruits, which is slated for March 30 at the United Center in Chicago.

Among the 13 schools represented, Kentucky has the most player commitments with four, headlined by stud shooting guard Malik Monk and forward Bam Adebayo. 

Here's a look at the full rosters:

Shooting guard Josh Jackson ranks as the No. 1 player in the country, per 247Sports' composite rankings, but he has yet to make a decision as to where he'll play college. It bears watching whether any of his peers try to sway him a certain way in the Windy City if he still hasn't committed by then.

In addition to Monk (fifth) and Adebayo (11th), Kentucky boasts point guard De'Aaron Fox, who's third in 247Sports' rankings.

Duke would have been represented by two players in the top four of 247Sports' overall hierarchy in power forward Harry Giles (No. 2)—the top committed prospect—and No. 4-ranked small forward Jayson Tatum. Unfortunately, Giles tore his ACL in November, per Borzello, and won't be able to play.

Fox will likely be the chief catalyst for the East All-American squad and will benefit from playing alongside his future teammates in Adebayo and Sacha Killeya-Jones, another stud at the 4.

Monk is more of a combo guard and can take on ball-handling duties or work off the ball, combining with Jackson to create a dynamic duo for the West.

Jarrett Allen and Marques Bolden join Jackson and Co. on the West as uncommitted players. If some combination of that trio develops chemistry or forges a relationship in Chicago, perhaps they could be swayed to join forces and bolster the fortunes of some powerhouse program.
