Yes, as long as he buys the game for the same region as you are in. Currently the game is region-locked, meaning that you can't play on a different server without buying a separate copy of Starcraft 2 specifically for that region.

Global Play is stated to be coming soon to Starcraft 2, and I believe this applies to all versions of Starcraft 2, not just the upcoming expansion Heart of the Swarm. This feature will allow you to create new profiles on other regions, so you would be able to play with him regardless of what server his copy was initially registered with.

Oh, cool! Then yeah, in that case you'll be fine -- the only concern might be some latency. –  Mana Dec 30 '12 at 2:26
