Francisco’s Finest: Pangos AA Camp (Part 3)
NORWALK, CA— The 2018 Pangos All American Camp held at Cerritos College was a terrific way to jumpstart the summer evaluating season. In all the years of attending this event this may have been the most talented group—in terms of “bigs” and wing-types.
From Charles Bassey to Isaiah Mobley there was a plethora of gifted seniors to be—however, it was the underclassmen that stole show led by 2020s Evan Mobley, Cade Cunningham, and Anthony Edwards. In the third segment we will looking at the Best Finishers.
Anthony Edwards (Atlanta, GA/Holy Spirit Prep)
2020, SG, 6-foot-5, 200 pounds
Joel’s Take: Arguably the most explosive finisher in camp was Edwards. His high-wire act was astounding as he attacked off the dribble relentlessly land the result was an electrifying finish in traffic. His first step is quick and powerful and with his ability to knock in the jump shot, his upside is immense.
Josh Christopher (Mayfair)
Joel’s Take: Christopher had an up-and-down camp due to his erratic decision making via shot selection. However, in the open court his strength and bounce are remarkable. He can finish over and though contact and he uses the rim impressively on his reverse finishes. Toss in the fact that he handed out some nifty dimes which demonstrates his overall talent.
Tre Mann (The Villages, FL/Villages School)
2019, PG, 6-foot-3, 165 pounds
Joel’s Take: Mann, in my opinion, was the best overall point guard in the camp. The jump shot is evident, but his ability to weave in and out of traffic and convert a number of runners over the length in this camp was impressive. He changes speeds to keep defenders off balance, which allows him to get off his potent paint-finishing skill set.
Brandon Boston (Norcross, GA/ Norcross)
2020, SG, 6-foot-6, 170 pounds
Joel’s Take: Boston’s shot selection was comical at times, but there is no denying his talent. He can convert the deep 3-ball, but it’s his slashing style in transition that should catch your attention. He has remarkable body control, elite athleticism, as well as the dexterity to finish in a number of ways.
Cassius Stanley (Sierra Canyon)
2019, SG, 6-foot-5, 195 pounds
Joel’s Take: Being out in So-Cal, we have grown accustomed to Stanley’s explosive nature. In transition, his burst and bounce are as good as it gets on any level of basketball. Strength and power are also part of the equation that makes him the best finisher in the region. As his pull-up game and decision making continue to improve, his stock will continue to rise.
