After sending players to Kansas, UConn, Hawaii, St. John's, Western Kentucky and many other schools, the IMG Academy basketball program has reloaded for the 2011-2012 school year.
One of the top recruits is Kamari Murphy, a 6-9, 200-pound post-graduate forward. Murphy was recently named one of the top players at the Super 16 Showcase in Hartford:
Murphy's motor was running at full capacity as he gave a strong performance. He was active defensively, getting all over the court to block shots or make deflections. In addition, he was absolutely explosive when he was loose in the open floor, getting his head above rim to finish with several highlight-reel dunks. His face-up skills also came out in spurts but he separated himself with his mobility and athleticism.
Keep an eye on Murphy throughout the year, as his stock is certain to rise with the help of IMG Academy basketball program coaches on skill development and Athletic & Personal Development program specialists to help with his strength and speed training.
