Players announced for Jordan Brand Classic

Future Duke teammates Jahlil Okafor, the No. 1 player in the ESPN 100, and Tyus Jones, the No. 4 overall player, highlight the 2014 Jordan Brand All-American Game rosters, which were announced Monday.
Okafor and Jones will represent the East, while the West team has the other three top-five players in the ESPN 100: No. 2 overall Myles Turner, No. 3 Cliff Alexander and No. 5 Emmanuel Mudiay.
Turner is the top uncommitted player in the country. Alexander signed with Kansas during the early signing period; Mudiay signed with SMU.
Okafor and Jones will be joined by future teammate Grayson Allen and rivals Joel Berry and Justin Jackson, who signed with North Carolina. Duke and Kentucky, the top two teams in the ESPN RecruitingNation class rankings, each have four future enrollees represented on the Jordan Brand Classic rosters.
The Jordan Brand All-American Game will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on April 18. In 2013, the event was headlined by Jabari Parker and Julius Randle, who shared co-MVP honors.
