Mr. Kentucky Basketball: Dontaie Allen Added to Great List of Winners of the Award, that went on to Play at Kentucky

Mr. Kentucky Basketball is an award that honors the top high school senior in the state of Kentucky. This year’s winner just happens to be a Kentucky Wildcat commit, Dontaie Allen, even though he only played 13 games after being sidelined with a torn ACL, he was averaging 42.9 points and 14.2 rebounds per game, leading the state in both.

Dontaie Allen is also a Kentucky Wildcat commit for next year, 2019/2020 season. So, how many Mr. Kentucky Basketball winners have gone on to play at Kentucky? How many can you name, without a Google search? (I named eight).
