Tennessee’s Jarnell Stokes will have a chance to spend another summer competing internationally after he officially accepted an invitation to tryouts at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.

USA Basketball announced Wednesday that Stokes was one of 24 players who had accepted invitations to the next month’s training camp that will be used to choose a roster for the 12-man U19 National Team.

Stokes was a star on last year’s U18 National Team that won the 2012 FIBA Americas Championship in Brazil. Stokes started all five games at the championship, averaging 14 points and 5.6 rebounds.
