In April, Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena will play host to the 2012 Jordan Brand Classic, featuring some of the nation's top high school basketball players. Game alumni includes several of the NBA's top stars like LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to name a few. For the game, JBC participants are outfitted head-to-toe in Jordan Brand apparel and footwear, and here's an early look at one of this year's JBC sneakers.

This Jordan Brand Classic Air Jordan 2012 sports a University Blue upper, accented by obsidian on the laces, inner lining and midsole. The inner bootie is adorned with the official Jordan Brand Classic logo in black. White handles large Jumpman branding and the outsole to finish off the look.

If you're following last year's motif, these are most likely going to be linked to the East squad. However, they've made a habit of switching up color schemes from game to game, so we'll update you as soon as we know who's wearing what and a potential release date.
