Thon Maker, Billy Preston highlight next group of Elite 24 invitations

By

The 10th annual Under Armour Elite 24 event is scheduled for Aug. 20-22 in New York City.

Dubbed as a showcase for the “24 Best High School Prospects in the World,” organizers have revealed an additional group of 10 players via the Under Armour Twitter page. The initial 12 were named in early July with the final two slots to come.

It is unclear how many of the players have accepted their invitations. Rosters won’t be finalized until closer to the game.

Though not listed via Under Armour, 2017 forward Mohamed Bamba from the Westtown School in Harlem, N.Y., has been invited, according to a tweet from his AAU program.
