Francisco’s Finest: Pangos Premier 80 Showcase (2022 Standouts)
LYNWOOD, CA—There were two major positives while arriving at Firebaugh High School Gymnasium—air conditioning and a bevy of talent. Dinos Trigonis continues to attract the best of the best around the country and it that will probably be the case at the FAB 48 in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks. The prospects ranged from 2022 standout Amari Bailey to 2020 stud Mady Sissoko—as well as a plethora of Division 1 prospects in between.
Randy Ovalle (San Gabriel Academy)
2022, WF/SG, 6-foot-7, 190 pounds
Joel’s Take: Ovalle is coming off a foot injury and is just rounding into form. He is a gifted wing who showed a well-rounded skill set. He has the length and athleticism to finish plays inside-and-out and his shooting touch is soft. His savvy was demonstrated with his ability to locate open teammates and not force the issue—which is tempting in a camp atmosphere. Look for Ovalle to be one of the more well-regarded prospects in the Class of 2022, both locally and nationally.
Amari Bailey (Oaks Christian)
2022, SG, 6-foot-4, 165 pounds
Joel’s Take: Arguably the most promising freshmen coming into the So-Cal region is Bailey. The slick lefty is very explosive off the dribble and his release on his shot is quick. He can face-up in a triple threat positon and either rise up and nail the shot or explode to the rim. This ambidextrous finisher has excellent body control and dexterity while converting in the paint and he plays with an excellent pace as he rarely forces the issue.
Skyy Clark (Oaks Christian)
2022, CG, 6-foot-1, 165 pounds
Joel’s Take: One of the better shooters/scorers entering the So-Cal high school scene will be Clark. He is a well-built combo-guard who affects the game in the areas of scoring and passing. He sets up his outside shot well off the dribble and his shot is smooth. He can get to the rim off the dribble and he has a nice in-between game via the runner. At this camp he struggled at times forcing the issue and becoming turnover prone, but overall he is a solid looking player.
Ramel Lloyd Jr (Sierra Canyon)
2022, WF, 6-foot-5, 165 pounds
Joel’s Take: Lloyd, whose father played at Long Beach State, is quite prospect as well. The younger Lloyd is rangy wing who has an impressive perimeter skill set for someone of his youth. He can knock in the 3-point shot, attack off the dribble showing a nice burst, or drop off a nifty dime to an open teammate.
