Andy Staples: Sports agency IMG diving headfirst into high school football, recruitin

BRADENTON, Fla. -- The brochure calls it "Sports Utopia," and the reality doesn't stray far from the artist's rendering. The grounds of the IMG Academies sprawl across 400 acres. Tennis courts and a basketball gym in the front give way to baseball, soccer and lacrosse fields in the back. An 18-hole golf course wraps around one side. If the all-athlete boarding school needs more space, IMG, the sports agency-turned-all-encompassing-globe-dominating-conglomerate, will buy more of the surrounding tomato fields and turn them into sports fields.
