Last June, IBA Bahamas hosted 60 student athletes to its annual combine summer camp which hosted various programme representatives from John Hopkins, Fisk University, Cape Fair Christian High School, Hallandale High school and Lamont Taylor, the CEO of GetMeRecruited.com.

Taylor returns this offseason to officially partner with IBA for the Super 60 Showdown.
