With a new location, all new uniforms and a star-studded cast of high school ballers, the 2013 Jordan Brand Classic is shaping up as a memorable event. Moving from Charlotte, N.C. to the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn (Michael Jordan’s birthplace), the Classic All-American game on April 13 will feature Duke commit Jabari Parker, Kentucky commits Aaron and Andrew Harrison, Julius Randle and the rest of the top ten from ESPN’s top-rated 100 high school basketball prospects.
The elite lineup is not to be outdone by the flashy uniforms Jordan Brand has unveiled for the festivities, including two exclusive colorways of the Air Jordan XX8. The shoes feature a “fractal elephant print” pattern matching each team’s jersey, as seen above.
The Jordan Brand Classic will also showcase an international game and a New York regional game, both preceding the All-American game, which tips off at 8 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN2. Recording artist Drake will perform following the All-American game.
