The Jordan Brand Classic, a showcase of the country’s most elite high school players, has announced the participants for the 17th annual event. Headlining the field are four Duke Blue Devils signees, a list that notably includes both R.J. Barrett and Zion Williamson.

Shareef O’Neal and Bol Bol — the sons of former NBA superstars Shaquille O’Neal and Manute Bol — are also playing in the game.

The Jordan Brand Classic, which also features a women’s game, will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on April 8.
