Three Carolinas players will play in the 2018 Jordan Brand Classic.
Spartanburg Day’s Zion Williamson, High Point Wesleyan’s Jaylen Hoard and Wilson Greenfield School’s Coby White will play this season.
The game is April 8 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The Jordan Brand game features some of the nation’s top boys and girls basketball players and is considered one of the nation’s biggest postseason all-star games, along with the McDonald’s All-American game. The McDonald’s Game is March 28 in Atlanta.
Williamson is one of four Duke recruits who will play on the “Home” team in the game. Williamson will be joined by future Blue Devils RJ Barrett (Montverde, Fla., Academy); Tre Jones (Apple Valley, MN, High) and Cam Reddish (Westtown, PA, High).
Hoard is the only Wake Forest recruit playing. White is one of two North Carolina recruits. He will be joined on the “Away” team by Orlando (Fla.) Christian Prep’s Nassir Little. Hoard will also play on the “Away” team.
