IMG Academy trainees left a strong impression on teams at this year’s NBA Combine. Topping the list is Miami’s Shane Larkin, who has been training at IMG Academy with several of his Miami teammates and other top Draft prospects from around the country in preparation for the 2013 NBA Combine and Draft. The 5’11” guard wowed with the fastest sprint (3.08 seconds) and a 44” max vertical – the second-highest vertical ever recorded at the Combine, and the highest in the last decade.
