Geico Nationals: Sunrise Christian vs Prolific Prep (Pt. 1)

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, Chris Livingston, Dariq Whitehead, Keyonte George, and Gatorade National POY Gradey Dick Gradey Dick 6'7" | SF Sunrise Christian (KS) | 2022 State #21 Nation KS .

Joel’s Take: One of the highlights of Sunrise Christian was the play of up-and-coming Middleton. The willowy wing-type is a slashing scorer who plays hard at both ends of the floor. Offensively, he shows a nice burst off the dribble and he’s tough to stop in transition. Not to mention he knocked in three 3s. Defensively, his lateral quickness is impressive and he has quick hands.
