2 IMG Academy Alumni Selected in the 2021 NBA Draft
On July 29, 2021, two IMG Academy basketball alumni's lives were forever changed. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, class of 2019, and Jaden Springer, class of 2020, were both selected during the 2021 NBA Draft. Springer heard his name called in the first round as the 28th pick by the Philadelphia 76ers while Robinson-Earl was originally selected 32nd by the New York Knicks before being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
After guiding IMG to the GEICO High School National Championships title in 2019, Robinson-Earl graduated and went on to compete at Villanova for two seasons. Springer, who was also a member of that National Championship team, competed at Tennessee for one season before opting in for the Draft.
