Arizona Wildcats sophomore forward Brandon Ashley will join incoming freshmen Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson in the training camp next month for USA Basketball's U19 World Championships team.

USA Basketball announced today that a total of 24 players were invited to camp, and 12 will ultimately make the team that will compete in the U19 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic, from June 27 to July 7.

Also invited to training camp were UA recruiting targets Justise Winslow and Jahlil Okafor, while Washington freshman Nigel Williams-Goss, Oregon's Damyean Dotson and UCLA's Bryce Alford were the other Pac-12 players invited.

The team will be coached by Florida's Billy Donovan.

While UA's three players all have USA Basketball experience, they won't have much time to make the team. The U19 team will begin practicing on June 14 and finalists will be announced after a morning practice session on June 15.

Here's the entire training camp roster.
