Nigel Williams-Goss has not played a game for the Washington Huskies yet, but he's already opening eyes this summer. The incoming freshman point guard accepted an invitation to the USA U19 Basketball training camp as announced by the UW athletic department on Wednesday morning.

Williams-Goss is one of the 24 players vying for a spot on the 12-player roster. The training camp will be held from June 14-19 at the US Olypmic Traning Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. The final roster will be revealed on June 15th.

The team will be coached by Florida's Billy Donovan with Virginia's Tony Bennett and Virginia Commonwealth's Shaka Smart taking positions as assistant coaches.

Williams-Goss is considered to be the top point guard recruit from the class of 2013 in the Pac-12. He participated in the 2013 McDonald's All-American game and Jordan Brand classic this past March. The FIBA U19 World Championship takes place June 27th through July 7th in Prague, Czech Republic.
