Three IMG boys basketball student-athletes were nominated, including Diabate, Ezra Ausar, and Tamar Bates. Diabate joins six other male Ascenders who have been recognized in previous years as McDonald's All Americans. Last year, Mark Williams (Duke) and Jaden Springer (Tennessee) earned their spots on the All American roster. In 2019, IMG Academy made history when Josh Green (Dallas Mavericks / Arizona), Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (Villanova), and Armando Bacot (North Carolina) became the first-ever trio from the same team selected to the McDonald’s game. Trevon Duval (Duke) was the program’s first-ever McDonald’s All-American.
