PLAYER PROFILE UPDATE: Jamel Fields

NICKNAME: Buddha

HEIGHT: 6-foot-1

WEIGHT: 172 Pounds

HIGH SCHOOL: Albany Academy in Albany, New York

POSITIONS: Shooting Guard/Point Guard

CLASS: 2010, A Current Sophomore

AAU TEAM: Albany City Rocks

COLLEGE OFFERS: Fairfield, Marist (previous staff), Siena, James Madison

OTHER COLLEGE INTERESTS: Monmouth, St. Francis, Albany

STRENGTHS: Gets to the basket consistently, ballhandling

AREA OF IMPROVEMENT: More consistency in his perimeter shot will be a necessary step of progress to allow himself some ability to zip past defenders

EVALUATION: Has good zip on his step when he handles the ball and goes north to south. He doesn't mind playing a bit around the rim since he has strength in his frame too.

He will only get better too as time goes on and he gains more game experience. The summer is a good opportunity for him to play against other top players and older players too.
