6'4 '17 Douglas Elks (WCBA Elite Blue) is a highly skilled and fundamentally sound guard. He works equally hard in the classroom as he does on the basketball court and sports an amazing 4.7 GPA at Ravenscroft, which is a private NCISAA school in Raleigh. At the David Rose Memorial Day Class, Elks averaged 15.8 PPG as WCBA Elite Blue finished 5-1.

Consistently is a strong attribute! He is a low risk, high return player. More than anything, he may be one of the most fundamentally sound players in the state regardless of class. Strong statement, yes but deserving so! Douglas is a two-way player and is the consummate team player. He's the perfect teammate. While he has the ability to score (15.8 PPG in six games), Douglas does so within the framework of the offense. Rarely will you see him try to manufacture his own shot. On offense, Douglas is always is position to score. He always 'does his work' early and has his knees bent and showing his hands to receive the ball. He has a textbook jumper with nice arch and excellent backspin and rotation.

On the defensive end of the court, he is the ultimate team defensive player. He is always in 'help side' defense and is always talking on defense. While watching him play team defense, you would think he is doing the 'shell defensive drill' the entire time on defense. More importantly, Douglas will do things that often won't show up in the score sheets. He doesn't mind driving on the floor for a loose ball or battling for a rebound. Douglas has solid technique in boxing out by developing a wide yet low base.

In our opinion, Douglas may be the 'perfect teammate,' but probably one of his best characteristics is his excellent and positive body language. We've had the wonderful opportunity to watch Douglas countless times over his high school career, no matter the venue, game, score, Douglas Elks is one of the most positive and encouraging teammates we have seen. In today's ego driven sports world, it is totally refreshing to watch a young man that combines academics, character, and a high skill set.
