Wagner is coming off a stellar McDonald’s All-American performance in which he scored 19 points in the second half to help lead the East Team to a 109-106 victory.

After getting bounced out of the NCAA Tournament in the Round of 32, all eyes will be on Wagner and Kentucky next season.

Wagner is considered to be one of John Calipari’s highest touted recruits since he took over in Lexington.
