The annual Pangos All-West Frosh/Soph camp featured more than 200 prospects from states all across the Western United States.
The camp featured a strong mix of point guards, scoring guards, wing scorers and big men. This piece dives in to some of the under-the-radar prospects from the two-day event at Westminster High.
Grant Tull, Gridley
Tull hails from Gridley up in Chico/Northern California area and brought his versatile game with him. The 6-foot-5 sophomore wing forward showed a consistent 3-point shot, ability to put the ball on the deck and navigate the mid-range level with a pull-up jumper and with finding open teammates with timely passes. Tull is a high IQ all-around basketball player who had his hands in a lot of different aspects of the game.
Brennan Rigsby, Jr., De Beque (CO)
Rigsby stood out because of his smooth and crafty game with the ball in his hands. The rangy 6-foot-4 guard displayed impressive feel for the game with his ball-handling and ability to change speeds and directions to get by defenders. Rigsby, a sophomore, did a nice job of balancing scoring and distributing on the weekend.
Keith Higgins, Chaminade
Higgins, a 6-foot-2 sophomore shooting guard, did exactly what those who’ve seen him play know he can do: Shoot it with range and consistency. Higgins is most effective from the top of the key, and well beyond it. He gets good lift on his jumper and doesn’t need much time or space to get it off.
Chris Fan, Modesto Christian
Fan is a super-athletic 6-foot-8 forward who showed a good amount of activity on both ends of the floor, especially when it came to rebounding and rim-running. Fan changes ends of the floor quickly and with purpose, he finishes around the rim with power and touch, and is quick off the floor for shot blocks and contests.
Luke Westermeyer, Clayton Valley
Westermeyer is a super crafty point guard with good feel with the ball in his hands. The sophomore is elusive with his movements, looking off defenses with this eyes and misdirecting with his body, which allows him to get into the paint where he can finish with a floater or drop off a pass to an open teammate.
Adam Hinton, Harvard-Westlake
The 6-foot-4 wing was one of very few players who was actively encouraging his teammates both on the court and on the bench. Hinton is an effective communicator on both sides of the ball, and can hoop, too. Hinton is a slasher and finisher on the offensive end, but really makes his impact defensively, where he can guard multiple spots and pull down defensive boards at a high rate.
