Last season on Prep Zone, IMG Academy out of Bradenton, Fla. edged Centennial (Corona) 50-49. On Saturday on Prep Zone and FOX Sports GO, expect as good of a game ... if not better ... between these two nationally-ranked powerhouses. Here are reasons to watch, if you even need that many!

Talent, talent everywhere!
Just look at the rosters of the two teams. You will hear these names called on Saturdays and Sundays in the future. For IMG Academy, Calbassas transfer Brendan Radley-Hiles leads an impressive defense while RB T.J. Pledger, a former Chaminade star, is a load at running back. Centennial has its fair share of stars, led by Tanner McKee (see the next slide ...).
One of the top 5 quarterbacks in the entire country, McKee stands 6-foot-6, has a rocket arm but also impressive touch and accuracy. Check out our lengthy profile on him here. The Huskies have a number of weapons at the skill positions but make no mistake ... this is McKee's team, and they will go as far as he can take them.
Game starts at halftime of huge CFB matchup
Since this game kicks off at 7:30p on Saturday, it's not an ideal time for any college football fans. However .... the start does occur around halftime of the highly anticpiated showdown between Alabama and Florida State. And since a majority of the kids during the IMG vs. Centennial will be playing major D-I college football next season, it's as good a time as any to get a look at the next crop of stars.
