Three UNC signees to play in Jordan Classic

Three members of North Carolina's 2012 recruiting class -- Marcus Paige, J.P. Tokoto and Brice Johnson -- will play in the Jordan Brand Classic game April 14 at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte.

Paige, a point guard from Iowa, told ESPNHS.com's Jason Jordan that he's excited about playing in front of so many Tar Heels faithful.

"I know that a lot of fans will be there and we want to put on a show for them," said Paige, the top-ranked point guard in the ESPNU 100. "It's such an honor to be in this game. I'm really excited to be a part of this."

Added Tokoto, a swingman from Menomonee Falls, Wis.: "The game alone is great, but to be able to play in front of the fans that will be cheering for me in college is even more special."

Paige, by the way, will be playing against his soon-to-be-UNC classmates. He's on the West roster, while Tokoto and Johnson are on the East. The rosters for the game can be found here.
