A Scout’s Take: Pangos All-West F/S Camp (Biggest Surprises)
WESTMINSTER, Ca.—Dinos Trigonis’ Pangos Frosh/Soph Camp is the ultimate stop on the Fall recruiting trail. The camp tour will also make stops in Texas, Illinois, and New Jersey. It’s a great way to get a glance of the future of high school basketball and the West Coast did not disappoint—as there were a plethora of point guard types that stole the show.
Chris Fan (Modesto Christian)
2021, PF, 6-foot-8, 200 pounds
Joel’s Take: The biggest surprise of the camp was the explosive Fan. He has a nice frame (strong base), solid feet, and good hands. He can explode in the paint for the finish or venture out to the stripe and nail the 3-point shot. His face-up game is solid already as he has the ability to drive past his defender (solid 1st step), finish with either hand in the paint, or knock in the 3-pointer.
Dave Elliott (Birmingham)
2021, CG, 5-foot-11, 155 pounds
Joel’s Take: Elliot is one of the better sleepers in this class. He is a skilled combo-guard who is equally adept at setting up his teammates as he is scoring. He can knock in the 3-point shot, advances the ball in transition, and his head is up while penetrating. Continuing to add to his half-court point guard skill set (pick and roll, etc.) will help his development.
Devin Walker-Lewis (Los Altos)
2021, WF/PF, 6-foot-4, 185 pounds
Joel’s Take: The ultimate blue collar type of player. He is a grinder who impacts the game with his rebounding, defense, and paint finishes. He has good feet and hands, has a knack for always being around the ball, and he can finish consistently out to 15-feet.
Brennan Rigsby Jr. (De Beque/CO)
2021, CG, 6-foot, 150 pounds
Joel’s Take: One of the bigger relevations of the camp was Rigsby Jr. The willowy combo-guard has natural basketball instincts, is a quick—twitch athlete, and he can score from all three levels. He can create for himself or snap passes to open teammates. He needs to get stronger and learn to make more efficient plays (plays too fast at times), but he he has a lot of moxie and talent.
DJ Allen (Mary Star)
2021, WF, 6-foot-5, 175 pounds
Joel’s Take: One of the more physically imposing wing-types was Allen. He possesses the ideal size, athleticism, and budding skill set to be a college player. He attacks the rim with strength and bounce. He can finish over the rim, through contact, and can finish with either hand. He is a cabable jump shooter out to the stripe and he can defend the perimeter.
