Mizzou, KU Five-Star Recruit Ben McLemore to Appear on ESPNU on Saturday

Five-star recruit Ben McLemore will be featured on ESPN on Saturday. The high school senior is reportedly deciding between Kansas and Missouri.

Five-star recruit Ben McLemore will appear on ESPN on January 15 as Oak Hill
 (VA) takes on Milton (GA) during the Spaulding Hoop Hall Classic in Springfield, Mass.

The highly sought after recruit has narrowed his choices to Big 12 rivals, Missouri Tigers and Kansas Jayhawks and has caused a lot of excitement within the two fanbases. Though fans may have seen McLemore in the stands during the Mizzou-Old Dominion and KU-Miami (OH) games, this might be the first time a lot of people will actually see what he looks like on the court.

The matchup of the two high school powers will feature a total of TEN players ranked in the Rivals 150 for either the 2011 or 2012 classes.

Besides McLemore, Oak Hill will showcase Duke signee Quin Cook and Arizona signee Sidiki Johnson as part of the class of 2011 and undecided juniors Damien Wilson, Jordan Adams.

Milton will dress future Vanderbilt Commodore Dai-Jon Parker, future Ohio State Buckeye Shannon Scott and future Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Julian Royal. Juniors on Milton include four-star Evan Nolte and three-star Shaquille Johnson.

The game will tip off January 15 at 7:00 p.m. CT on ESPNU and will be the first of two times McLemore and Oak Hill will be featured on the World Wide Leader.

[Ed. Note: As pointed out by Walshdollar, the game has been moved to ESPNU (or I misread the initial announcement)]
