Fields stands out at Hoop Group Elite Camp
Fields, at 6'5, is a long, wiry athlete who excelled slashing to the basket. In my first viewing, Ahmad was able to get to the rim, but struggled a bit finishing around the basket. That gradually improved, and Fields put together a 4-5 minute span in the final game where he was phenomenal. While he clearly favored going left, he also threw down a monster right-handed jam on the break.
While he was at his best scoring the ball, Ahmad also showed an ability to create off the bounce for his teammates. He had an alley-oop pass to teammate Kyle Thomas from near half-court and also had two other pretty assists in half-court sets.
The majority of Ahmad's points on Tuesday came on driving dunks and lay-ups. He attempted two three-pointers in my viewing and missed both, but elevated well on both and had good form.
After watching him, Hawk Hill Hardwood spoke with the talented wing about his summer and his recruitment. Fields first confirmed the report that he did indeed transfer out of Blue Ridge (VA) to Massanutten (VA) for his senior year. Ahmad then explained that he is now up to four unofficial visits. Those visits are to Saint Joseph's, George Washington, Richmond, and Towson.
In addition to those four, Fields stated that he hopes to visit UNLV, USC, and Colorado this summer. With DC Assault he will be swinging out west this month and hopes to take some of those visits while out there.
With the new texting regulations in place, college coaches are able to remain in constant communication with recruits. Fields said that Saint Joseph's, Colorado, and a few others were in weekly contact with him.
With St. Joe's, Richmond, and George Washington among the schools vying for Ahmad Fields, there is a good chance the slashing lefty will end up in the Atlantic 10. The size, skill set, and competitive streak is certainly there for him to be a contributor should he end up in the A10.
