CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Porter-Gaud rising senior Josiah James was one of 12 players from around the country named to the USA Basketball Under 18 National team on Tuesday afternoon.

James will represent his country at the 2018 FIBA Americas Under 18 Championship next week in Canada.

The Cyclones star was also a member of the 2018 USA Basketball Junior National Select Team that took part in the NCAA Next Generation Sunday at the 2018 NCAA Men's Final Four.

This is the latest honor for a player quickly becoming one of the best the Lowcountry has ever seen. James helped lead Porter-Gaud to a 3rd straight SCISA 3-A state title this season.

He's also one of the most sought after recruits in the country with offers from at least a dozen schools including Duke, Michigan State, Clemson and South Carolina.
