    Jonathan Kuminga and Adama Sanogo of The Patrick School and Canadians Charles Bediako and Josh Primo headline the list of high school stars invited to the prestigious Basketball Without Borders camp over All-Star weekend in Chicago Feb. 14-16.

    The 6-foot-8 Kuminga is originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo and is now the No. 1-ranked player in the Class of 2021 and a projected Top-10 NBA pick next year. The 6-10 Sanogo is originally from Mali.

    Bediako, the 6-foot-11, 215-pound big from Andrews Osborne Academy (CA), recently picked up a scholarship offer from Louisville to go along with offers from Michigan State in November and Duke in December. Despite rumblings that Bediako, ranked No. 24 in the Class of 2021 by ESPN.com, may reclass to 2020, his AAU coach says he will remain in the 2021 group.

    Primo, a 6-6 guard from UPlay Canada and the Royal Crown Academic School in Mississauga, holds offers from Oregon, Utah and Alabama, among others. He recently visited Alabama.

    Among the other high-profile high-school players invited are Rafael Pinzon of Long Island Lutheran/N.Y. (Puerto Rico), Moussa Diabate of IMG Academy/FL (France) and Moussa Cisse of Lausanne Collegiate/TN (Guinea.)

    2029 NBA All-Stars Pascal Siakam (Toronto Raptors; Cameroon), Davis Bertāns (Washington Wizards; Latvia), Tacko Fall (Boston Celtics; Senegal) and 2017-18 NBA All-Rookie First Team member Lauri Markkanen (Chicago Bulls; Finland) will coach the top 64 boys and girls campers from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe.

    Among the record 30 former Basketball Without Borders campers on opening-night NBA rosters for the 2019-20 season(active and inactive), 14 participated in the BWB Global Camp, including 2018-19 NBA All-Rookie First Team member Deandre Ayton (Phoenix Suns; Bahamas; BWB Global 2016), 2019 No. 3 overall draft pick RJ Barrett (New York Knicks; Canada; BWB Global 2017), 2019 No. 9 overall draft pick Rui Hachimura (Washington Wizards; Japan; BWB Global 2016), 2018-19 NBA All-Rookie Second Team member Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder; Canada; BWB Global 2016) and 2016-17NBA All-Rookie Second Team member Jamal Murray (Denver Nuggets; Canada; BWB Global 2015).
