Full Press Release

NEW YORK, NY (January 31, 2007) – Jordan Brand, a division of Nike, Inc., announced today that O.J. Mayo (Huntington, WV/Southern Cal), Derrick Rose (Chicago, IL/Memphis) and Eric Gordon (Indianapolis, IN/Indiana) headline the nation’s top 20 high school senior basketball players at the 2007 Jordan Brand All-American Classic, presented by Foot Locker and Boost Mobile, at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, April 21st. This year’s event will be televised nationally live on ESPN2. The Jordan Brand All-American Classic will also continue to include a regional game, showcasing the top prep players from the New York City metropolitan area in a City vs. Suburbs showdown. A portion of the proceeds will once again benefit the New York City-based charity, The Children’s Aid Society.

“There have been so many stars in the Jordan Classic over the years,” said Mayo, who has been an All-USA Today first-team selection since his sophomore season. “I am thrilled to play my final high school game at Madison Square Garden with the best players in the country.”

In addition to Mayo, Rose and Gordon, the Jordan Brand All-American Team also includes Jerryd Bayless (Phoenix, AZ/Arizona), Michael Beasley (Fitchburg, MA/Kansas State), Nick Calathes (Winter Park, FL/Florida), Corey Fisher (Elizabeth, NJ/Villanova), Austin Freeman (Hyattsville, MD/Georgetown), Donte Greene (Towson, MD/Syracuse), Blake Griffin (Edmond, OK/Oklahoma), Gary Johnson (Houston, TX/Texas), Jeffrey Jordan (Wilmette, IL/Undecided), Kosta Koufos (Canton, OH/Ohio State), Jai Lucas (Houston, TX/Undecided), Chandler Parsons (Winter Park, FL/Florida), Patrick Patterson (Huntington, WV/Undecided), Kyle Singler (Medford, OR/Duke), Durrell Summers (Redford, MI/Michigan State) and Chris Wright (Washington, DC/Georgetown) and Chris Wright (Trotwood, OH/Dayton).

The 2006 Jordan Brand All-American Classic was highlighted by a co-MVP performance from two of the NCAA’s top players this year, Kevin Durant from the University of Texas and Thaddeus Young from Georgia Tech. Young posted 28 points and 13 rebounds to lead his team to a 108-95 victory. Durant finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and three blocks.

“These Jordan Brand All-Americans continue to represent the future of basketball,” said Larry Miller, President of Jordan Brand. “The game will again feature the best players in the country at the World’s Most Famous Arena and benefit a great cause in the Children’s Aid Society.”

Sponsored by Jordan Brand, the event is also annually attended by some of sport and entertainment’s biggest stars, who have included Michael Jordan, Spike Lee, LL Cool J, Warren Sapp, Terrell Owens, Floyd Mayweather, Kanye West, Ahmad Rashad, Al Harrington and Vince Carter. Atlanta-based rap sensation, T.I., performed at the 2006 All-American game.

Recent Jordan Brand All-Americans have included NBA stars Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Amare Stoudemire, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul as well as current NCAA standouts Durant, Young, Tyler Hansbrough (North Carolina), Brandan Wright (North Carolina), Corey Brewer (Florida), D.J. White (Indiana) and Spencer Hawes (Washington).
In addition to the game, the Jordan Brand All-Americans have a number of special events around New York City. Last year’s players held an autograph session at a local Foot Locker with artists Fat Joe and Trey Songz, participated in a basketball clinic at the Children’s Aid Society’s Dunlevy Milbank Center in Harlem for over 100 New York City kids, visited Ground Zero, toured BET’s studios and attended an intimate awards dinner with Michael Jordan where they received their All-American rings.

This year’s event doubleheader will begin with the Regional Game at 6:30 p.m., followed by the All-American Game at 9:00 p.m. The regional rosters will be announced in early March.

Tickets are now on sale at all Ticketmaster locations, the Madison Square Garden box office, online at ticketmaster.com or by calling 212-307-7171. For more information, please visit the official web site, www.JordanBrandAllAmerican.com.
