Kentucky fans will be able to catch several of the Wildcats' top recruiting targets in action Saturday during the 2013 Under Armour Elite 24 game.

The all-star game's final rosters were released Monday, and while they featured the removal of UK commitment Karl Towns Jr. while he plays with the Dominican Republic National Team, they still include top targets like Emmanuel Mudiay, Stanley Johnson, Kelly Oubre, Rashad Vaughn, Stephen Zimmerman, Tyus Jones, Malik Newman, Myles Turner and Justice Winslow.

The game, which will air on ESPNU at 7 p.m. ET, will be played in Brooklyn, N.Y., with Team Coney Island (Johnson, Mudiay, Oubre, Vaughn, Zimmerman, etc.) taking on Team Bed-Stuy (Jones, Newman, Turner, Winslow, etc.).

The Bluegrass State will also be represented by Louisville native D'Angelo Russell, an Ohio State commitment, on Team Bed-Stuy.

A slam dunk contest and skills competition will be aired Friday night at 7 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
