IMG Academy basketball program's Brian Greene Jr. has committed to Auburn University. After an impressive post-grad year at IMG, the athletic guard landed on Tony Barbee's 2012-2013 Auburn Tigers roster.
Said Greene Jr., âThe overall intense day-to-day schedule here at IMG has truly prepared me for the required disciplined schedule at the next level. I came here with offers only from smaller schools, but I worked hard, put up a lot of shots and got a lot of repetitions in, and with the help of the great coaching staff here I was able to develop into the player that I wanted to be. I am extremely excited to go to Auburn; it has always been my dream to play big-time basketball, and it is finally here.â
At the recent 3rd annual Beach Blast Tournament hosted by IMG Academy, Greene showcased his talents to numerous coaches from around the country, while competing against some of the nation's best. With his all-around outstanding play, Greene was selected as a member of the 2012 Beach Blast All-Tournament team.
Greene enrolled at the IMG Academy basketball program following his high school graduation to continue his development and prepare for the transition to collegiate ball. With IMG'S state-of-the art facilities in combination with its knowledgeable and experienced coaches and trainers, Greene and his work ethic were destined for success. Remarked Loren Jackson, Post-Graduate Head Coach,âBrian Greene was a player that had Horizon League offers when he first came to IMG and now he is off to the SEC to do great things. He had all the pieces - we just helped him complete the picture.â
