GEELONG has selected James Willis with the 32nd selection in the 2021 NAB AFL Draft on Thursday night.

Willis is a hard-edged midfielder with that attractive combination of dazzling speed and powerful endurance. He used those assets to have excellent season with North Adelaide at under-18s level, averaging 24.3 disposals, 3.8 clearances and 4.7 tackles in 12 matches.

The 18-year-old is tough and competitive, he's a contested ball-winner who loves the physical side of the game.
