One Tennessee Volunteer will be representing the university in international competition. 

On Tuesday the USA Basketball announced that its under 19 team's 12 man roster will include Tennessee forward Jarnell Stokes. 

Stokes finished last season as Tennessee's team leader in total rebounding (9.6 rpg), offensive rebounding (4.2 orpg), free-throw attempts (194) and blocks (1.1 bpg).

His 4.2 offensive rebounds per game ranked third among all players in Division I college basketball, and his 16 double-doubles were the most among SEC players and marked the most by a Vol in a season since Hall of Famer Bernard King had 19 in 1976-77.

Stokes is one of eight team members with previous USA Basketball experience and one of five players who were a part of last summer's U18 FIBA Americas Championships squad that captured the gold medal in Brazil.
