With grassroots basketball events getting underway across the country, California is also beginning to hold some events. This past Saturday, Long Beach, CA played host to the Pangos Best of SoCal Showcase.

The event included multiple showcase games from some of the top SoCal talent from each class (2021, 2022, 2023, 2024) and even a 2025 game. Here’s some of the top talent that I saw from the second 2021 game.

1. DJ Allen DJ Allen 6'6" | SF St. Anthony | 2021 State – St Anthony

Allen is a strong wing player and will be a major piece for St Anthony this upcoming year. He has good strength and uses it to his advantage to finish around the rim. He gathers himself well in the paint and can finish around most defenders. He has good quickness and can get out well in transition. He can play in the paint too and he can hit face-up jumpers.

2. Brenton Knapper Brenton Knapper 6'0" | PG Colony | 2021 State #136 Nation – Colony

The Santa Clara commit is an all-around solid guard. He’s a great outside shooter who can create his own shot on the perimeter. Crafty ball-handler and a very athletic player. He gets out in transition and is looking to finish strong at the rim.
