Real Salt Lake (RSL) Academy and head coach David Evans announced the addition of Liam Dayco-Green, one of Canada’s top prospects, to its premier basketball development program.
“Liam is going to be a great player with the program for years to come,” Evans said. “His work ethic is second to none and we are excited to add someone with his competitive drive and a passion for being successful.”
Recognized as an elite shooter and scorer with relentless work ethic, Dayco-Green, a 6-foot-3 combo guard out of Vancouver, British Columbia, is rated as the No. 5 overall Canadian prospect in the class of 2024, according to NorthpoleHoops.com. He has been invited to the 2021 U16 Team Canada camp and will enter RSL as a sophomore with three years to play.
A two-sport athlete at Vancouver College, Dayco-Green excelled in both basketball and football, winning provincial (state) championships in both sports as a starting guard and tight end, respectively. In the classroom, Dayco-Green was recognized as a four-time honor student at Vancouver College.
For three years, Dayco-Green played for Canada’s prestigious Nike UPLAY Canada, considered the best AAU club in the country, consistently producing NBA and Division I talent.
In addition to Nike UPLAY Canada, Dayco-Green consistently averaged over 20 points, five rebounds and five assists over five years playing for DRIVE Basketball, the Pacific Northwest’s premier AAU club, where he led his Elite 1 club in scoring and assists, winning 19 tournaments as a starter between 2015-2020.
Born in Toronto, Canada, Liam Dayco-Green, his brother Aidan Dayco-Green and his parents have lived across North America in cities like Vancouver, New York City and Chicago. Liam will now call Utah home.
