Jabari Parker was one of 22 players selected for the Jordan Brand Classic, scheduled for April 13 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The 12th annual Jordan Brand Classic is headed to Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., this year with a star-studded lineup.

Jordan Brand announced the 22 participants Tuesday for the April 13 contest.

The top 11 players in MaxPreps.com's Class of 2013 Top 100 will all be in Brooklyn, including No. 1 prospect Andrew Wiggins and highly-touted phenoms Aaron Gordon, Jabari Parker and Julius Randle.

"This year's roster could be one of the most talented in the 12 years of the Jordan Brand Classic – even with an alumni list that has become the who's who of basketball," Jordan Brand president Larry Miller said in a press release distributed Tuesday.

In an interesting roster twist, Kentucky-bound identical twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison will be placed on opposite teams. The proliferation of future Wildcats is a connected storyline with UK pledges Dakari Johnson, Marcus Lee and James Young joining the Harrisons.

The Jordan Brand Classic will air at 8 p.m. EST on ESPN. Preceding the main event will be a regional game featuring talent from the New York metropolitan area and another contest featuring promising prospects from around the world.

Barclays Center will play host to the tripleheader for the first time. Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, N.C., Madison Square Garden in New York City and the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., are past venues for the event.
