Top UK basketball recruits Jaylen Brown and Stephen Zimmerman were named to the Team USA under-18 squad Sunday morning.
Brown and Zimmerman were two of seven players from the class of 2015 to make the team. The other five players on the 12-man roster are class of 2014 recruits who will be playing college basketball this coming season.
Both UK targets have scholarship offers from the Wildcats and are expected to take official visits to Lexington in the next few months. Zimmerman has already planned his trip to coincide with Big Blue Madness in October.
Florida Coach Billy Donovan is the head coach of the under-18 team, which will host the FIBA Americas U18 championships starting later this week in Colorado. Arizona Coach Sean Miller and Providence Coach Ed Cooley are Donovan’s top assistants.
The other members of the under-18 squad are Stanley Johnson (Arizona), Tyus Jones (Duke), Justise Winslow (Duke), Myles Turner (Texas), Isaiah Briscoe, Jalen Brunson, Luke Kennard (Duke), Tyler Lydon (Syracuse), Dwayne Morgan (UNLV) and Allonzo Trier.
