Incoming Arizona freshman Stanley Johnson and three Wildcat recruiting targets were among the 12 players chosen for USA Basketball’s final U18 roster Sunday.

Johnson is expected to be one of USA’s top players when it hosts the FIBA Americas U18 Championship from Friday through June 24 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

He will be joined by 2015 guards Allonzo Trier and Isaiah Briscoe, who both have scholarship offers from UA coach Sean Miller, an assistant coach for the U18 team. Center Stephen Zimmerman of Las Vegas, another UA target, also made the team but his teammate at Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High School, Chase Jeter, did not.
