Omari Spellman named to 2016 Jordan Brand Classic Game

The Jordan Brand Classic is one of the elite all-star games every year, and the Brooklyn-based event has released their initial 16 participants for the 2016 game to be held at the Barclays Center on April 15th. Villanova-bound Omari Spellman was named to the roster in what is essentially a who's who of the nation's elite.

Full roster:

Name Position Height/Weight High School Committed
Harry Giles PF 6'10" 220 lbs. Oak Hill Academy (VA) Duke
Jayson Tatum SF 6'8" 190 lbs. Chaminade (MO) Duke
Josh Jackson SF 6'7" 185 lbs. Prolific Prep (CA)
Malik Monk SG 6'4" 180 lbs. Bentonville (AR) Kentucky
Edrice Adebayo C 6'9" 230 lbs. High Point Christian (NC) Kentucky
De'Aaron Fox PG 6'4" 170 lbs. Cypress Lakes (TX) Kentucky
Miles Bridges SF 6'7" 220 lbs. Huntington Prep (WV) Michigan State
Jonathan Issac SF 6'9" 190 lbs. IMG Academy (FL) Florida State
Markelle Fultz PG 6'4" 170 lbs. DeMatha (MD) Washington
Omari Spellman PF 6'8" 255 lbs. St. Thomas More (CT) Villanova
Marques Bolden C 6'11" 240 lbs. De Soto (TX)
Udoka Azubuike C 6'10" 275 lbs. Potter's House Christian (FL)
Tony Bradley C 6'9" 230 lbs. Bartow (FL) North Carolina
V.J. King SF 6'6" 180 lbs. Paul VI (VA) Louisville
Alterique Gilbert PG 6'0" 170 lbs. Miller Grove (GA) Connecticut
Andrew Jones PG 6'4" 175 lbs. MacArthur (TX) Texas

Via Scout's Evan Daniels, the JBC is expected to add six more names to the roster prior to the game this spring. It's a longshot that Dylan Painter lands an invite to the National game given the current roster, but he should be in contention for the Regional game much like Donte DiVincenzo last year.

Anyways, congrats Omari!
