The Kentucky-bound Camden High School duo of Aaron Bradshaw and D.J. Wagner have been named semifinalists for the Naismith Trophy High School Player of the Year, awarded annually by the Atlanta Tipoff Club.

Fellow Kentucky commit Justin Edwards of Imhotep Charter in Philadelphia was also named a finalist. The three players shared the same court last Saturday at St. Joe’s University when Wagner scored 18 of his game-high 22 points in the second half to lead Camden, No. 2 in the NJ.com Top 20, to a 60-57 win.

All three players were also named to the McDonald’s All-American Game set for March 28 in Houston. Pervis Ellison, the former Louisville star who was the No. 1 pick in the 1989 NBA Draft, told NJ Advance Media the trio could be part of Kentucky coach John Calipari’s “best” recruiting class ever.
