Two UNC commits named to USA Men’s U18 Training Camp roster

Two UNC basketball commits will compete for a spot on the USA Men’s U18 roster in late May, the organization announced on Tuesday.

Both G.G. Jackson and Seth Trimble were named to the USA Men’s U18 Training Camp roster. They are two of 27 athletes named to the roster with 12 spots on the USA Basketball U18 National Team which will compete at the 2022 FIBA U18 Americas Championship in Tijuana, Mexico, from June 6-12.

Per USA Basketball, this is the full list of tryout players:

Representing the class of 2021 is Corey Floyd.

The class of 2022 will be represented by Mark Armstrong, Amari Bailey, Anthony Black, Eric Dailey Jr., Dior Johnson, Ty Rodgers, Nick Smith Jr., Seth Trimble, Jordan Walsh, Kel’el Ware and Cam Whitmore.

Expected to participate from the class of 2023 are Matt Bewley, Omaha Biliew, Xavier Booker, Kanaan Carlyle, Stephon Castle, Isaiah Collier, Caleb Foster, Brandon Gardner, Brandon Garrison, Gregory ‘GG’ Jackson, Carter Lang, Jared McCain, Ja’Kobe Walter and Bryson Warren.

From the class of 2024 is Derik Queen.

Trimble is a four-star prospect that committed to UNC in 2021 and is the highest-rated prospect in their 2022 recruiting class. Jackson committed to UNC recently as a five-star recruit in the 2023 class.

It’s nice to see some of Hubert Davis’ recruits earn some recognition like this in terms of camp invites. Now it’s time to go earn that roster spot.
