IMG Academy basketball program guard Spence Sheldon has committed to play basketball at Western Kentucky University.
“I knew that I wanted to go home and play basketball collegiately. I told everyone before I left that I wanted to go away for a year to get better, but I wanted to go back home to play basketball. I told myself before I left; I would work hard, so I can be better prepared for the next four years. Going home is definitely going to be nice because I’ll have the opportunity to play in front of a home crowd and family.”
Sheldon’s coach at the IMG Academy basketball program, Vince Walden, looks forward to seeing Sheldon play at the next level, and knows that he will understandably represent IMG Academy well.
“On behalf of the IMG Academy basketball program family, we all congratulate Spence Sheldon on his commitment to Western Kentucky. We are extremely excited about his opportunity and we share in the excitement with his family on his commitment to play basketball at Western Kentucky. Western Kentucky has a fine coaching staff, with which Spence has developed a relationships with being from Kentucky himself, which will make it an easy transition for him. At this point, it’s all about Spence getting his body ready for Sun Belt conference play and continuing to train, so he can getting those necessary reps that are needed for him to make impact in year one of his commitment.”
IMG Academy wishes Spence the best of luck in all his future endeavors on and off the court.
