LONDON, Ky. (WYMT) - The mountains’ own Reed Sheppard is a McDonald’s All American.

Sheppard, Justin Edwards, DJ Wagner and Aaron Bradshaw will represent the Cats at the 46th annual McDonald’s All American Game. Kentucky leads all programs with four signees on the roster.

Sheppard is the first Kentucky high school player selected to the game since Bowling Green’s Chane Behanan in 2011. The son of former UK players Jeff Sheppard and Stacey Reed Sheppard, he currently is averaging 23 points and 8 rebounds for North Laurel (12-9) and is rated a 5-star guard by Rivals.

Robert Dillingham, the fifth 2023 UK signee, was ineligible to make the roster.
