McDonalds-All-American-Games-315x300.jpg John Calipari and Matthew Mitchell will both have good reason to tune in to the McDonald's All-American Game.

A trio of 2012 Kentucky signees were named McDonald's All-Americans, two future members of the men's team and one for UK Hoops. Forward Alex Poythress and guard Archie Goodwin will each play in the boys' game, while point guard Janee Thompson will play in the girls' game in her hometown of Chicago.

Poythress and Goodwin, each consensus five-star prospects in this year's class, become the ninth and 10th of Calipari's signees to earn spot in the prestigious game in what will be his fourth recruiting class as head coach at UK. Of players on Kentucky's current roster, Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Anthony Davis, Marquis Teague and Kyle Wiltjer each played in the game.

Thompson, a 5-foot-7 high school senior, is the latest in a recent run of Mitchell recruits to become McDonald's All-Americans. Current Cats DeNesha Stallworth, Samarie Walker, Jennifer O'Neill and Bria Goss all received the same honor.

Both the boys' and girls' games will be played on March 28 in Chicago's United Center.
