Ascenders At A Glance

IMG was as good as anyone in the country last year, tied with Oak Hill in the waning seconds, before Silvio DeSousa’s midseason departure to Kansas. Now, former St. John’s (D.C.) coach Sean McAloon, in his second year with the Ascenders, finds himself with an even more talented roster from top to bottom after the recent addition of transfers 6-10 SR Armando Bacot (a North Carolina commit and MVP of the Nike Peach Jam in July), 6-8 SR Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and smooth guard 6-4 JR Jaden Springer. Throw in returning high-major 6-6 SR Josh Green, and IMG has four players who are ranked among the top 20 players nationally in their classes.
