Pangos All-Midwest Frosh/Soph Camp Day 1 Standouts:
Saturday was day 1 of the Pangos All Midwest Freshman Sophomore Camp at La Grange Park District in La grange, Il bringing out over 180 campers from across the Midwest. The Camp started off with a skills workout led by former NBA/NCAA assistant Dave Miller. Then games to follow on all three courts, each team had 10 players with substitutions every 5 minutes. Here are some of the standouts from day 1!
Patrick McCaffrey 6’9 2019 SF Iowa City, IA
The son of University of Iowa head coach Fran McCaffrey. Patrick put on an impressive offensive performance displaying a high skill set and ability to play both forward positions. McCaffrey has a lanky frame but can put it on the floor and finish with authority. Plays above the rim, but was most impressive was his mid-range game where he can was effective off the catch or dribble and utilizes the glass when playing with his back to the basket.
Jeremiah Oden 6’6 SF 2019 St Rita HS (Chicago, IL)
We saw Jeremiah at the Prep Hoops expo where he impressed and his strong play continued at day 1 of the Pangos All Midwest Fr/Soph Camp. Oden showed range knocking down deep three points including a strong stretch of three in a row. Oden was just as effective off the bounce and around the rim. With good length Oden also was strong on the defensive end protecting the rim and also grabbing rebounds.
Marquise Walker 6’0 PG 2019 St Joseph (Westchester, Il)
Marquise Walker came out strong in day 1. He was able to use his strong frame and athletic ability to get to the rim at will. Walker handles the ball well and what was impressive just as much as his scoring ability was the way he got his teammates involved with his court vision and timely passes for assists. Once he got rolling and in a rhythm in the open court he was tough to defend.
Markese Jacobs 6’0 PG 2019 Uplift Hs (Chicago, Il)
The University of Kansas commit came out of the gate with high motor and never let up. The Uplift PG has great athleticism and major bounce and uses that to his advantage to get to the basket. He plays both ends of the court with high energy, putting pressure on the defensive end, resulting in easy buckets on the offensive side for him or a teammate. The true mark of a good point guard is the ability to make others better which can be tough in a camp setting but Jacobs did just that.
Travis Stampley 6’3 G 2019 Lincoln Park (Chicago, Il)
Stampley performed well during day 1 with his ability to be in the right spots at the right time. Constantly flashing through the lane for an easy basket, and also showing the ability to step out and knock down the jumper. His presence on defensive also showed by playing the passing lanes and getting several steals.
Tyler Beard 5’11 2020 G Whitney Young (Chicago, Il)
Beard had a nice performance as the 2020 G showed the ability to score from all three levels and in a variety of ways. He displayed a solid stroke from deep nailing 3’s off the catch. He also could too his defenders off the dribble and finished at the rim. He played with great pace and flow and let the game come to him never forcing any shots. Has a high motor and brought energy on both ends of the court. For a guard he rebounded very well attacking both the defensive and offensive glass, and made good decisions out on the break to set up teammates.
Detalian Brown Jr. 6’2 2019 SG Morton West (Berwyn, Il)
Brown was a smooth scoring during day 1. With a nice fundamentally sound jump shot the combo guard was knocking down shots from all over the floor. Pushed the ball well in transition and likes to get out in traffic and slash to the rim. Uses his quickness to get pass defenders, and is a threat to score from all three levels, which makes him difficult to defend. Like the upside of Brown.
