CLASS: 2010, A current freshman at The Albany Academy

LAST EVENT THE REPORTERS FROM HIGH SCHOOL NEW YORK SCOUT.COM WEBSITE WATCHED JAMEL FIELDS IN PERSON: At Jimmy Salmon's Spring Fling held in South Orange, New Jersey.

THOUGHTS ON JAMEL FIELD'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Jamel has no fear in taking the ball to the basket. He is strong enough to finish against the bigger bodies around the basket.

Jim Hart is taking it slow with Buddha too. He'll utilize Fields' skills sometimes at the 16 and under events as well as playing with the top team at crtain tournaments.

It's smart to take it slow with Jamel. He obviously has the talent to be a solid division one player down the road. But he is a freshman and it's wise that Jamel concentrate on the importance of making proper decisions with the basketball.

Fields plays hard every possession too. So it's only a matter of time as his game progresses.
