Ryerson Rams sophomore Tanor Ngom has been invited to participate in the 2018 Nike Basketball Academy in Los Angeles.

The annual event, which runs from Wednesday to Sunday, gathers around 20 of the best collegiate basketball players for drills, competitions, off-court workouts, film sessions, and five-on-five competition, all led by current and former NBA players.

Ngom, from Senegal, is the first U SPORTS player ever invited to the Academy.

Ngom will rejoin the Rams for an Aug. 15 exhibition game against Duke at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ont.
