Pitt signee Corey Manigault to play in Capital Classic

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt basketball signee Corey Manigault won't be here until next season, but you can get an early glimpse of him at an upcoming high school all-star game. Manigault and others will be participating in the Capital Classic, an annual game in Washington, DC.

The game will be on Thursday, April 28th at 8:00 p.m. at Catholic University's DuFour Center. There's also an earlier game at 6:00 p.m. and tickets are $20.00. I haven't seen any mention of it being on TV yet.

Here are the full rosters. Also of note is that former Pitt guard Ashton Gibbs' younger brother, Temple Gibbs, will be there as well. The Panthers tried unsuccessfully to recruit him a while back.

In the past, the game has hosted some prestigious players in the past, such as Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Patrick Ewing, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Dominique Wilkins, Jason Kidd, and many more. Their Twitter account says it's the nation's longest-running high school all-star game - this will be the 43rd one.

Manigault is a three-star recruit from Paul IV Catholic school in Fairfax, VA. Rivals currently lists him as a Top 150 player and he chose Pitt over several schools, including Miami, Virginia Tech, Xavier, VCU, and Wake Forest.
