Ohio State sophomore Musa Jallow has been named to the 2018 USA Basketball men’s under-18 national team training camp.
The camp, which will take place from May 31-June 2 at the Olympic training center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, will feature 32 players competing for a spot on the national team.
Jallow is one of 15 first-time camp participants, but he is the lone player with NCAA experience. A native of Bloomington, Indiana, Jallow opted to forego his senior year of high school, graduate early and reclassify to the class of 2017 in order to sign with the Buckeyes.
Many players on the roster are from the class of 2019 and some, such as Keion Brooks, DJ Carton and Joe Girard III, are being recruited by the Buckeyes.
To be eligible for the camp, players must have been born on or after January 1, 2000. Jallow did not turn 18 until early February during his freshman season. He finished the year averaging 2.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 14.0 minutes per game. Jallow made 10 starts in 33 appearances.
The team will be coached by Kansas coach Bill Self and assistants Anthony Grant from Dayton and Danny Manning from Wake Forest.
Finalists will be announced June 2 and those players will continue training from June 3-8 before taking part in the 2018 FIBA Americas U18 Championship in Canada.
