Level Up Circuit Standout: Dayon Polk, Class of 2023

Dayon Po

During all three sessions of the Level Up Circuit in Wilmington, Delaware, eighth-grader Dayon Polk for The Association consistently stood out.

Dayon plays with noticeable poise. His demeanor is calm but his ability speaks volumes as a three-level scoring guard. Making decisions on the move comes naturally for Dayon, including impressive footwork on pull-up jumpers and the willingness to attack and finish at the rim.

What we like about Dayon is his willingness to play within the flow of the game. He rarely decides to force the issue, even though he might usually have that freedom as one of the better players on the floor.

What probably sticks out most about his game is his shooting ability. Dayon has excellent form and showed consistent rhythm as an outside shooter off the catch and hitting shots off the dribble. In finding his looks he rarely seems phased. Overall he has the mechanics of a high-level prospect to watch out for in the future.

Dayon will be attending Archbishop Carroll High School in Pennsylvania as a freshman in the fall.
