COLLEGE INTERESTS: Fairfield continues to make great progress in recruiting solid prospects for its program. The coaching staff works very hard and is quite skilled at evaluating talent.

Not shocking to us. We see the staff quite often on the road, especially in the tri-state area. Fields is a very good pickup for the Fairfield staff. The future seems very bright for the Faifield basketball program.

WHAT ALBANY CITY ROCKS PROGRAM DIRECTOR JIM HART SAYS OF JAMEL FIELD'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

Jamel presents problems for smaller guards with his strength. He has the ability to score in the paint due to his strength.

Fields scored 27 points to help his team upend a very talented Bishop Loughlin High School of the highly regarded Catholic League in New York City.

PREVIOUS EVALUATION:

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES IN JAMEL FIELDS' INDIVIDUAL GAME: It can be said that his strength and weakness is measured from his confidence and aggressiveness.

Jamel has always had the heart and strength to take his dribble to the front of the rim against the big frames. Not afraid to get knocked down, he make the spinning drive to draw the hard foul too.
