Following his strong play at the Sunflower Showcase, Carroll GoL1ve’s Gavyn Elkamil added 5 new D1 offers and many more schools checking in. Elkamil is taking a prep year at Link Year Prep in Branson, MO after an injury to his wrist slowed his high school career down. Early on in this late summer season, it’s paying off for Elkamil by adding those 5 offers to his existing 5 D1 offers like SIU-Edwardsville, Towson, and Northern Colorado, and UMKC. Elkamil is a big-time player that is starting to garner the big-time interest that his game deserves.
At the Sunflower Showcase, Elkamil went back and forth with a good SW Illinois Jets-Blue team who has some good prospects themselves. He finished the game with 27 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 assists and was the best player on the court.
Elkamil is an excellent 3pt shooter, but once the defense comes out to force him off he is also just as deadly going towards the basket and getting downhill. He can create for himself off the dribble with good patience or he can dish to an open teammate. What most impressed us was his on ball defense against a good, up-and-coming prospect in Cole Farrell, and his ability to make things tough for Farrell. Mid-Major and High-Major programs should be getting in now.
