Jordan Brand announced its star-filled roster for the 12th annual Jordan Brand Classic, taking place on April 13 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Following in the footsteps of current Jordan athletes and Jordan Brand Classic alumni Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Blake Griffin, the next generation of superstar talent will take the floor in a nationally televised game live on ESPN2.

Jordan Brand, a division of NIKE, Inc., has selected 22 of the top prospects in the country, including all of the Top-10 rated players from the ESPN 100, highlighted by No.1 Andrew Wiggins (Huntington, WV/Undecided), No. 2 Jabari Parker (Chicago, Duke), No. 3 Andrew Harrison (Ft. Bend, TX/Kentucky), No. 4 Julius Randle (Dallas, Undecided) and No. 5 Aaron Harrison (Ft. Bend, TX/Kentucky).

The Jordan Brand Classic event will also include a Regional Game, showcasing the top prep players from the New York metropolitan area in a "City vs. Suburbs" showdown, and the sixth annual International Game featuring the top 16-and-under players from around the world.

The triple-header will begin with the International Game at 3:30 PM followed by the Regional Game at 5:30 PM, and the All-American Game at 8:00 PM. The International and regional rosters will be announced at a later date.

"This year's roster could be one of the most talented in the 12 years of the Jordan Brand Classic – even with an alumni list that has become the who's who of basketball," said Larry Miller, President of Jordan Brand. "The event will be an incredible showcase of talent reaching millions of people around the world through ESPN2 and in person at Brooklyn's Barclays Center."

Additional selections for this year's event include Joel Embiid (Gainesville, FL/Kansas), Tyler Ennis (Newark, NJ/Syracuse), Aaron Gordon (San Jose, CA/Undecided), Kasey Hill (Montverde, FL/Florida), Kuran Iverson (Waynesboro, VA/Memphis), Rondae Jefferson (Chester, PA/Arizona), Dakari Johnson (Montverde, FL/Kentucky), Matt Jones (DeSoto, TX/Duke), Marcus Lee (Antioch, CA/Kentucky), Kennedy Meeks (Charlotte, NC/North Carolina), Bobby Portis (Little Rock, AR/Arkansas), Wayne Selden (Tilton, NH/Kansas), Noah Vonleh (New Hampton, NH/Indiana), Chris Walker (Bonifay, FL/Florida), Troy Williams (Mouth of Wilson, VA/Indiana), Nigel Williams-Goss (Henderson, NV/Washington) and James Young (Rochester, MI/Kentucky).
