Arizona Preps is very pleased to announce that one of the nation's top prep school programs, and a member of the national Grind Session, Lincoln Academy (GA) will be attending this year's 20th Annual Arizona Preps Fall Showcase. Lincoln Academy is absolutely loaded with division-I talent and looks to make this year's event one to remember.
Lincoln Academy head coach Bryan Lippman, one of the top up-and-coming young coaches in America, and his basketball staff have quickly developed Lincoln into one of the nation's elite prep programs. Founded in 2017, the basketball program has competed against some of the best competition and in some of the best tournaments in the country. The program has a 100% graduation rate, has had over (100) different Division-I coaches visit their campus, and their players have earned over (50) different Division-I scholarship offers.
Their mission is to create a phenomenal academic and athletic experience that prepares student-athletes for intercollegiate basketball - both on and off the floor. The program is located in the town of Suwanee, Georgia. Suwanee has been rated by Money Magazine as one of the Ten Best Places to Live and by Family Circle Magazine as one the Ten Best Towns.
After a strong season last year, Lincoln returns a very loaded group this season that includes one of the nation's Top 5 prospects in the 2021 class, 6-foot-9 sophomore wing Jonathan Kuminga (pictured). The team also features top 2019 prospects, 6-foot-8 senior guard Elias King, 6-foot-10 senior post Moulaye Sissoko and 6-foot-1 senior guard Mikale Stephens; Top 2021 prospects 6-foot-10 sophomore post Bretner Mutombo and 6-foot-3 sophomore guard Rafael Pinzon; Top 2022 prospects 6-foot-8 freshman wing Perry Smith and 6-foot-3 freshman guard Jalen Smith.
Our staff is proud to have Lincoln Academy in this year's historic 20th Annual event, and look forward to the exciting game competition that this program will create, as they match up with other top-rated opposing prep programs in the event, such as Hillcrest Prep (AZ) and AZ Compass Prep (AZ).
