Geico Nationals: Oak Hill Acad. vs Link Acad. (Part 2)

FORT MEYERS, FL—It’s hard to believe but Geico Nationals is in its thirteenth year of existence and its been quite a ride with a staggering amount of players that have ended up in the NBA, including Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Jaylen Brown to name a few. This year is no different as there are a plethora of highly-talented ballers in Jordan Walsh Jordan Walsh 6'7" | SF Link Academy | 2022 #31 Nation MO , Chris Livingston Chris Livingston 6'6" | SF Oak Hill Academy | 2022 State #9 Nation VA , Dariq Whitehead, Keyonte George, and Gatorade National POY Gradey Dick. 

Much-Improved

Joel’s Take: The Kentucky-bound Livingston has improved his game each and every season. The bully-ball guard has some Lance Stephenson and Stanley Johnson to his game. He has the strength and physical mindset to damage defenders off the drive and his 3-point shot is becoming more consistent. He can finish with either hand and he plays with a solid motor.
