Kentucky Players Chosen All-Americans in High School

130 Players Chosen
Note: This lists Kentucky players who received All-American recognition in high school from various organizations and events. This list is incomplete. For example in addition to a national high school tournament in Chicago in the 1920's, there was a similar event for Catholic schools, for which All-tournament teams are not known. In addition, the lists of Scholastic Coach Magazine's All-American teams is incomplete.
Players with an (*) transferred from Kentucky.
