On Friday night, 26 of the nation's highest-rated high school seniors will be taking part in the Jordan Brand Classic in Brooklyn, N.Y. In advance of the big game, we're taking a look at the strengths and weaknesses of each of the players on the roster, and attempting to forecast what role they will play in the 2014-15 season.

If you're not familiar with the Jordan Brand Classic, it's essentially the younger brother of the McDonald's All-American Game. The latter has been played every year since 1979, but the Jordan Brand Classic has only been around since 2002.

The game will feature a lot of the same players, though. Of the 26 names on the rosters for Friday night's game, 21 also competed in the McDonald's All-American game. These are the best of the best when it comes to next year's freshmen.

If you're curious which young players will be dragging out "Should I stay or should I go to the NBA?" decisions next April after just one year in school, look no further.

The following slides are listed in ascending order of the player's average rank from 247Sports, ESPN, Rivals and ScoutHoops.
