Injuries can sometimes slow down the momentum of prospects but if they continue to put in the work and stay the course eventually they’re back on the hardwood creating a buzz once again.  That thought process fits perfectly for 2020 G Gavyn Elkamil of Pittsburg High School (KS).

A talented 6-4+ guard who can play either position on the perimeter, Elkamil has size, strength, solid athleticism, and an advanced feel for the game.  He handles the ball well, he can attack off the bounce and score through traffic or at the mid-range level with consistency.  His perimeter stroke is also smooth with range that extends well beyond the arc and can be made with consistency.  Overall the junior standout from Kansas has a smooth floor game and that was evident this past spring where he started to generate momentum before a June injury forced him to sit out the rest of the summer.

Back on the hardwood and healthy, Elkamil is picking up right where he left off and he’s generating a quiet buzz with Division 1 programs.  He holds offers from Southeast Missouri State, Southern Mississippi, and UMKC with interest also coming this fall from Utah State, Wichita State, Southern Illinois, Kansas State, South Carolina State, and South Dakota State.  One of the better kept secrets in America’s heartland, Gavyn Elkamil is currently a senior but there is momentum for a reclassification to the 2021 class, although that hasn't been confirmed to date.  That being said, Elkamil is talented and trending upward and you can expect the buzz surrounding him to get louder in the coming months as he can play and he seems primed for a big year.  .
