STRENGTHS IN JAMEL FIELDS' INDIVIDUAL GAME: His aggressiveness and confidence in his offensive skills make him a worthy player to watch over the next year.

Being more responsible for his decision-making will ultimately determine the level he lands scholarship offers.

Jamel is a player who can be an impact player at the proper program and the right level.

PREVIOUS EVALUATION THOUGHTS ON THE INDIVIDUAL GAME OF JAMEL FIELDS:

AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: Like most guards that are very efficient near the rim with their handle, the perimeter game will be needed to be more consistent to give his defenders two weapons to think about.

EVALUATION: Has the speed and handle to get to the rim consistently. Finishing against the bigger bodies in the paint is the second part of the equation. A big year awaits Fields. If he is able to consistently finish up his great drives and keep his defender honest with a perimeter shot, Jamel should have a big season.
