Twenty-eight of the country’s top high school boys’ basketball players will invade Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on April 17 to participate in the 14th annual Jordan Brand Classic. Rosters were released Thursday.

The game tips off at 8 p.m. ET and will shown on ESPN2.

Ben Simmons, the consensus No. 1 player in the country from Montverde (Fla.) Academy who is signed to LSU, headlines the West while Wheeler’s (Marietta, Ga.) Jaylen Brown, who is ranked No. 2 and remains undecided, will lead the East.

Kentucky leads the way with three JBC All Americans — Roselle (N.J.) Catholic guard Isaiah Briscoe, Lausanne College School (Memphis) center Skal Labissiere and Chicago St. Rita guard Charles Matthews. Kentucky could have more by game time, given that the game is days after the spring signing period begins. Undecided players such as Brown, Malik Newman, Ivan Rabb, Stephen Zimmerman, Thomas Bryant, Cheick Diallo and Caleb Swanigan were selected for the game and all are among Kentucky targets.

Duke, Florida State and LSU each have two players in the boys game. Dwayne Bacon (Oak Hill; Mouth of Wilson, Va.) and Malik Beasley (Saint Francis; Alpharetta, Ga.)  are future Seminoles, Simmons and Antonio Blakeney (Oak Ridge; Orlando, Fla.) are heading to LSU, and Luke Kennard (Franklin, Ohio) and

The boys’ game will cap-off a quadruple-header which includes an international game, a New York City regional game and the first girls Jordan Brand All American game.

Mater Dei’s (Santa Ana, Calif.) Katie Lou Samuelson, the top ranked player in the ESPN HoopGurlz 100 who is signed to Connecticut, anchors the West, while St. Pius X Catholic’s (Atlanta) Asia Durr, who is ranked No. 2 and is signed to Louisville, leads the East.

Louisville, Connecticut and Notre Dame will have three signees apiece. Among the Louisville signees, Durr and North Babylon (N.Y.) guard Brianna Jones will be on the East team, and guard Taja Cole (Lloyd C. Bird; Chesterfield, Va.) was picked for the West. UConn signees De’Janae Boykin (Flowers; Springdale, Md.) and Samuelson will play for the West and Napheesa Collier (Incarnate Word; St. Louis) is on the East team. Notre Dame signees Ali Patberg (Columbus North; Columbus, Ind.) and Marina Mabrey (Manasquan, N.J.) are on the East team and Arike Ogunbowale (Divine Savior Holy Angels; Milwaukee) is on the West.
