PITTSBURG, KS — Over the last few years, we have seen a slew of prospects emerge from the Missouri/Kansas area, and Gavyn Elkamil could certainly be the next. ThePrepInsiders.com had a recent conversation with the talented scorer and Kansas native.

We took a moment to talk about his high school season, recruitment, and a few things he’s working on to further strengthen his game. The 6-foot-3 guard shed some light on the adjustments he’s made on the court during the high school.

“It’s been going good, we’re ranked 5th in the state. We have a lot of scorers so I get to play other roles and still be a scorer.  So I play my role, and rebound.” –Gavyn Elkamil

Last summer Elkamil played with Team MoKan Elite 14U, and he created opportunities to get better. Playing with such a high-level program allowed Elkamil to focus on his game and continually improve.

“I’m really focusing on my ball handling and agility. I shoot everyday and I really want coaches to know I can actually score the ball on all levels. I want to transition to a full-time PG, and want to make sure the ball is on a string.” –Gavyn Elkamil

The Class of 2020 guard says recruitment is picking up over the recent months, and he plans to show out against the best competition he’ll face all year. As he progresses, Elkamil could emerge as one of the most coveted prospects from the Midwest region, and told ThePrepInsiders.com that he plans to reclassify to the Class of 2021 in the coming months.

“So far Nebraska and Wichita State have shown interest.  I know I’m ready for the summer, plus I feel I’m getting better during this time, with the better competition.” -Gavyn Elkamil

While Elkamil is young, it should be noted that he can flat-out score the ball already and continues to integrate new wrinkles within his game. In time, he should be a very intriguing guard option, especially if he can solidify himself as a point guard. We will certainly keep a close eye on Elkamil throughout these next few months to keep track of his progression.
