ComboBox DefaultSelectedItems w/ Office 365 Users Connector

I am looking to setup a combobox for of users with the Office 365 Users connector and while I was able to properly populate the combobox, I am having trouble setting up the DefaultSelectedItems property for the combobox on my edit form.  The PowerApp pulls the majority of the data from a SQL Server where i have a User field in my table (we will call it Table1 for the sake of the example). So for example if on the Detail Screen the txtUser = "Mike" then when selecting to edit the record, I want the DefaultSelectedItem for the comboboxUser to already have "Mike" selected.  I have tried several methods from LookUp to context variable and have not had much luck.  Has anyone been able to setup the DefaultSelectedItems for Office 365 Users and if so how did you structure your formula to select the User from Office 365 Users that is stored in the SQL database.
