Jake Layman/Under Armour Twins invited to USA U18 Tryouts

Well, after reading some chatter lately about Jake Layman playing against weak competition during his HS team's season, and how he's not as improved as the scouts said he was last summer, he must have done something right. Jake was just invited, along with the Harrison twins, to the tryouts for the USA U18 team.

I'll be curious to see if Andrew Harrison gets the starting nod at PG over Nate Britt. It should happen, but Nate still could somehow squeeze in there. I hope the Harrisons want to keep their against-the-grain #UA approach going come August/Sept announcement time.

The ACC placed 7 committed recruits at the tryouts.

As mentioned on the sports wire yesterday, Billy Donovan will be the head coach, and Mark Few and Shaka Smart his assistants.

  1. This is awsome news. If Jake makes the team that would be great experience for him to grow as a player and great brand recognition for the Terps. Plus it might allow Jake to do some recruiting with the Twins.

    Anyway one of the twins gets invited and the other doesn't? Drama!

    1. I said that wrong. I meant any way that one makes the team and the other doesn't

    2. gotcha. That would be an interesting scenario. Another reason for the Twins to be "BallinSoHard" Between UA and BallinSoHard U, the staff HAS to get these guys with us.

    1. check out my fake jake layman twitter @fakejakeandbake - I commented on MooMoo - I like both those guys - wish we had room for both too. We're going to get the youngest brother Jaelin who is a rising Soph at DeMatha - save the best for last!
