Jordan Brand Classic breakdown

No. 1 ranked Andrew Wiggins leads a star studded line up of prospects who will play in this spring’s Jordan Brand Classic.

Andrew Wiggins is one of the elite prospects in the event.

22 prospects will square off April 13 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The top 11 prospects in the Top247 are in the game. 15 of the 22 participants are 247Sports’ five-star prospects.

Kentucky is represented by five of its recruits. Next is Duke, Florida, Indiana and Kansas with two recruits each in the game. Arizona, Arkansas, Memphis, North Carolina, Syracuse and Washington each have one representative. And three of the prospects are undecided.

Here is a breakdown on the participants:

It will be interesting to see how Vonleh fits in with Gordon and Parker.

Marcus Lee (No. 9 247Sports/ No. 17 247Composite)

Lee is part of a deep West frontline and has a chance to prove himself against the best.

Will we see some two man game with Hill and Walker?

James Young (No. 11 247Sports/ No. 10 247Composite)

West squad; Kentucky
Johnson faces future Florida and North Carolina centers.

Rondae Jefferson (No. 18 247Sports/ No. 14 247Composite)
East squad; Arizona
Will Jefferson prove he has been overlooked behind the higher ranked forwards?

Williams should thrive in this up tempo game.

Kennedy Meeks (No. 49 247Sports/ No. 41 247Composite)
