    Baylor commit VJ Edgecombe, North Carolina pledge Ian Jackson, Miami commit Jalil Bethea, Arkansas signee Billy Richmond, Syracuse pledge Elijah Moore, Auburn commit Tahaad Pettiford and uncommitted Class of 2025 guard Kiyan Anthony are all committed to the game, which will tip at 8 p.m. following the girls game.

    The ACES Elite Classic is an annual event platform featuring the top ranked boys and girls in
