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.
