    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Below are the players selected for the Jordan Brand Classic set for April 18 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

    From the New York/New Jersey area, Syracuse commit Chris McCullough of IMG Academy, Seton Hall signee Isaiah Whitehead of Brooklyn Lincoln and Kentucky commit Karl-Anthony Towns of St. Joe’s-Metuchen were all selected.

    All four Kentucky and all four Duke pledges made the game. Myles Turner is the lone uncommitted player in the game.

    Here is the McDonald’s All-American roster for comparison.

    McCullough (Syracuse), Daniel Hamilton (UConn), Kameron Chatman (Michigan) and Shaqquan Aaron (Louisville) were named to the Jordan Classic but not the McDonald’s Game.

    The Jordan Regional and International rosters will be named later.
