IMG Academy honors college commitments

IMG Academy soccer program college commits

Thursday afternoon, over 70 seniors from IMG Academy walked across the stage of the Neel Performing Arts Center at the State College of Florida commemorating their commitment to various colleges and universities around the country.

The ceremony featured students from the IMG Academy baseball program, IMG Academy basketball program, IMG Academy golf program, IMG Academy soccer program, and IMG Academy Bollettieri tennis program who have signed with an institution during the spring signing period, while other seniors has previously committed during the fall.

Some of the highlighted schools and student-athletes include Phillip Greene (basketball) who is attending St. Johns University, Kylie Kaufman (soccer) Columbia Univeristy, Briel Crespi (soccer) Brown Univeristy, Marika Liu (golf) Yale University, and many more!

From the Bradenton Herald:

The big city lights and playing in arguably the best college basketball conference were part of what hooked Phillip Greene.

The point guard joined more than 70 other IMG Academy athletes in celebrating their various college choices during the spring commitment ceremony Thursday at State College of Florida's Neel Performing Arts Center.

Greene chose St. John's University, which enjoyed an NCAA Tournament appearance and 21 wins in Steve Lavin's first year as head coach.

“I'm a city kid, so I like the city,” said Greene, who hails from Chicago. “They are in the spotlight, so I get to play Madison Square Garden almost every home game, and the style of play was easy for me to choose.”

The Red Storm, who play in the vaunted Big East, qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 2001-02 campaign last season.

Greene's training at IMG Academy helps make the transition to the college game a little smoother.

“They have the best facilities in the nation,” said Greene, who also thought about heading home for college ball at DePaul. “The coaches really know what they're doing. They're professionals, so they know what it takes to get to that level.”
