IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Iowa Hawkeye basketball player Jarrod Uthoff has been invited to play in the 2015 Nike Basketball Academy.

The University of Iowa announced on Thursday that Uthoff will participate in the academy which brings together NBA stars like LeBron James and Kevin Durant to help college players develop their skills.

Nike has hosted position skills academies for high school and college players since 2007. Aaron White participated last year.

Uthoff, a Cedar Rapids native, was the only Division I player to record 55 blocks, 50+ 3-pointers, and 35+ steals.

The academy takes place June 26-30 at the Santa Monica Hangar in Santa Monica, California.
