A Scout’s Take: Pangos All-West F/S Camp (Top Scoring Guards/Part 2)
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.
Christian Moore (Brentwood)
2022, SG, 6-foot-4, 165 pounds
Joel’s Take: The multi-skilled Moore is one of the more gifted freshman in the West. He has that prototypical frame with long arms and he’s a quick athlete. His perimeter handle is quite good and he his passing prowess is impressive. Slashing drives and pull-up jump shots in the mid-range are part of the package and he can hit the occassional 3-pointer as well.
De’ Vontes Cobbs (Shadow Mountain/AZ)
2022, SG, 6-foot-3, 160 pounds
Joel’s Take: Cobbs is yet another quality guard who plays at a relentless pace. He has superior bounce and quickness and is a terror in the open court. His burst off the dribble is impressive and he can score in the paint area with a variety of finishes. His jump shot needs to get more consistent and he needs to learn to play at a more controlled pace (change speeds), but he’s a talent.
Kennedy “Reece” Dixon (Dorsey)
2021, SG, 6-foot-4, 170 pounds
Joel’s Take: The multi-positional Dixon affects the game in the areas of scoring and facilitating. He can knock in the deep 3, explode to the rim for the finish, or hand off the nifty assist in transition. He has an ideal frame to play all three positions on the perimeter and the skill level and savvy are evolving as well.
Chris Washington (St. John Bosco)
2021, SG, 6-foot-3, 160 pounds
Joel’s Take: Washington is has extraordinary lenght with long arms and high hips and resembles a young Scottie Lewis—who recently committed to Florida. His burst is terrific, has the length to finish over the “bigs” in the paint, and his jump shot is on the come. Playing under Adam Dunn, he should evolve into a lethal defender.
Aaron Burgin (San Diego)
2021, SG, 6-foot-2, 165 pounds
Joel’s Take: Burgin had a exceptional Pangos All Star game as he drained a number of deep 3-pointers off the catch and the bounce. He has an ideal frame with long arms and his athleticism is on the come. His feel for the game is noticeable with his ability to find open shooters off the dribble. He needs to improve his ability to break down defenders off the dribble, but he is progressing.
