XU Commit Headed to Nike Global Challenge

Xavier commit Edmond Sumner was named to the USA Midwest roster for the Nike Global Challenge earlier this week.

Xavier's latest commitment, 2014 guard Edmond Sumner, will be representing our country - or at least a region of it - starting on Thursday in the Nike Global Challenge.

Sumner found out earlier this week when the rosters for the event were released. The Nike Global Challenge is one of the more interesting events of the summer that Nike has developed over the last seven years. The international competition between four regional USA teams (East, West, Midwest, and South) and four International teams (Africa, France, Brazil and Canada) will be played in Washington, D.C. from July 18-20 at Trinity Washington University.

Sumner will be playing on the USA Midwest team with an incredibly talented roster that includes the No. 1 and No. 2 players in the Scout top 100 for the 2014 class, center Jahlil Okafor and point guard Tyus Jones, respectively. Also on the Midwest team with Sumner will be the No. 6 rated player in the class, center Cliff Alexander, as well as No. 11, shooting guard Rashad Vaughn. Louisville commit JaQuan Lyle, who's ranked 12 in the class, and Ohio State commit Jae'sean Tate, who's ranked 52, are also on the team. In fact, everyone on the USA Midwest roster is ranked in the top 60 of Scout's Top 100, except for Sumner.
