Since entering high school, Josh Angle has quickly earned himself a reputation for one thing – shooting the ball. But the 6-foot-1 guard from Lake Oswego is trying to prove himself as more than just a shooter and this off-season playing AAU basketball with Team Fly North is helping him do that.
“We’re really developing as a team and I like our group a lot,” Angle said. “I’ve been shooting the ball well and I’m improving on my ball-handling and being able to play point guard. I’m also been focusing on my defense because that’s been a point of concern for me in the past.”
Angle was one of the main guns on Team Fly North and will be in the summer months as well. He also recently got a chance to play on the EYBL circuit by joining the Rose City Rebels for Session 3 in Atlanta. In four games, Angle averaged 6.8 points and nailed seven three-pointers.
“It was a really good experience getting to play with the top players in the country,” Angle said. “It was definitely eye-opening to see where my game was at. It took me a little time to get used to the speed of the game but I was happy with the weekend.”
A top-notch student, Angle is getting college interest from some of the top academic schools in the country – Columbia, Cornell, and Dartmouth. There’s no question he’s excited about being recruited by all three. “My parents have always pushed me to do well in the classroom,” Angle said. “To go to an Ivy League school, that’s my dream.”
Angle has visited all three schools unofficially but has no particular favorite at this time. Instead he’s going to play out the summer with Team Fly North before starting to do anything more with his college recruitment.
“I definitely want us to show that we can play at a high level,” Angle said. “We want to show that Oregon basketball is better than what they think it is.”
Angle currently ranks as the #7 player in the PrepHoops Oregon Class of 2019 rankings.
