Elevate Hoops Summer Icebreaker II is in the books as ninety-six teams came out to Manalapan, NJ to participate in the event. Here are standouts plus additional from this past weekend:


Isaiah Moll (Class of 2018 | NY Havoc)

As Quinnipiac is the latest program to offer, Moll used his size to post up smaller defenders to score inside with ease. The 6-foot-6 physical forward showed his ability to attack the basket by straight line drives as he did a solid job of drawing fouls. Moll has also earned offers from Loyola Chicago, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Siena.


Judah Jordan (Class of 2019 | Team Melo)

At 6-foot-2, Jordan, displayed his ability to score on all three levels. The Team Melo floor general controlled his body well each time he drove to the basket as he used his handle to get past defenders. Although the smooth Baltimore native has a score first mentality, he did a fairly well job of getting his teammates involved. He stated he would like to visit Maryland, Towson, and George Mason in August.


Caleb Fields (Class of 2018 | Jersey Force – Stein)

Fields absolutely dominated and exploded this past weekend to a point where it’s mind-boggling that he only has one scholarship. The 2018 guard shot off the dribble at a high level and was patient as he read ball screens well. In terms of his recruitment, the 3.6GPA student has interest from Columbia, Boston University, Stony Brook, La Salle, among others. He stated that he would like to take a visit to St. Francis very soon.


RJ Blakney (Class of 2019 | Team Melo)

The 2019 bouncy guard has shown his explosiveness all throughout the weekend. As he brings good length, he uses that to his advantage to finish over and around his defenders when attacking the basket. The 6-foot-5 wing has claimed offers from Tulsa, Towson, St. Bonaventure, and others. He has interest from West Virginia, Maryland, Xavier, and Kansas State.


Dahmir Bishop (Class of 2019 | K-Low Elite)

The Imhotep Charter (PA) product was impressive all weekend on both ends of the floor. He showed his high IQ down low as he was very patient when going up to score and his ability to draw fouls as well. Although his handle needs to get tighter, he showed signs of being able to handle the ball, as he would easily get past defenders at times. Bishop has offers from Bowling Green, Penn State, Hofstra, and NJIT.
