Pangos Camp Day Two

Los Angeles, CA – The Georgia boys showed up in full force in California. While there's a solid group of locals playing well, the prospects from Georgia are impressing all on lookers. Brandon Jennings and Demar DeRozan aren't too shabby either and made themselves known as well.

Cashmere Wright, PG – The Clemson commit has been one of the best point guards in the camp. A standout at Savannah (GA) Urban Christian Academy, Wright is a superb athlete with decent quicks and solid stroke from deep. In one of his two games he went for 25 points and buried a couple of threes. Like many high school hoopsters he needs to gain strength and value the ball better in the open court before he gets to college.

Jennings goes off
Brandon Jennings, PG – His morning game was one of the best games we've seen from him in a long time. The recent Arizona commit was deadly from deep, as drained three-pointers off the catch and bounce. His court vision was on point, as he tossed out a half dozen assists to go with 36 points and 11 rebounds. If efforts like this reciprocate he could climb a little higher in the rankings. In the long run, Jennings needs to add some strength to his frame and show more consistency, but there's no doubt that he's talented and one of the best guards in the country.

Dequan Jones, SF – Much of the same from yesterday, Jones could be seen flying through the air and throwing down the best dunks in the gym. He runs the floor, has a strong frame and is one of the better wings in the south. If he ever gets his shot to come around, look out for this Georgia prospect.

Teondre Williams, SF – Similar to his club teammate, Dequan Jones, Teondre Williams has freakish athleticism and excels in the open court. At 6-foot-5 he has good size for the wing spot and he is strong enough to take hits and still finish. One thing he did this morning that we haven't seen is knock down tough jump shots. It was nice to see him drain a pair of off the dribble threes, and an off balance step-in jumper because that means he's been working on his jump shot. He finished with 24 points during his first game of the day.

Demar DeRozan, SF – Apparently he was great in Arizona and so-so at the Tournament of Champions. At the Pangos camp he's been a little bit of both. Last night he finished with a high point total, but never looked in the flow of the game. Today he was stroking three-pointers and throwing down nasty dunks in transition, as he looked every bit the part of a top 15 player.

Storm Warren, PF – The Monroe (LA) Richwood standout has quite a motor. He gets after it on both ends of the floor and fights bigger guys for rebounds. Offensively he's a little raw, but he did knock down a 18-footer.

Story strokes it on home court
Malik Story, SG – If today was any indication on how Story will shoot during practices sessions at the Galen Center then he'll certainly be lighting up his teammates. The Lakewood (CA) Artesia standout also mixed in a few nice drives and step-in jumpers. In his opening game he drilled six triples and scored 29 points. Darrius Garrett, PF – Offensively the 6-foot-8 forward is raw and needs to improve his footwork, however he is an interesting prospect because of the effect he has on the defensive end. Garrett is clearly the best shot blocker in the camp, as he was swatting shots all over the place.

Will Brown, PF – According to Brown he's only been playing basketball since his was a freshman in high school. If true, that's rather impressive because he was filling it up from deep and stroked three straight triples on consecutive possessions. At 6-foot-8 we'd like to see him do a little work inside, but he's certainly intriguing.

Anthony Marshall, PG – One of the more heady ball handlers in attendance was Marshall, who stands 6-foot-2 and goes to Las Vegas (NV) Mojave. The 2009 standout has a strong handle and is smart with the ball in the open court and in sets. His stroke isn't bad either, as he hit a few threes and a pretty step back jumper from 15-feet.

Roger Franklin, SF – Today was clearly a shooters day, as threes seemed to be falling for everyone, and Franklin especially. The 6-foot-5 Duncanville (TX) High product caught fire in his first game and stroked three straight from the wing. He also mixed in a few 15 footers. He looked improved since the Real Deal on the Hill and plays smart basketball.

Hollis Thompson, SF – It's hard to not like Thompson's upside. At 6-foot-7, he's mobile, can shoot it and has extremely long arms. The Los Angeles (CA) Loyola product is a high-major wing that is tough to stop going to the basket. Mix in big time grades and a high basketball IQ and we have quite a player.

Demar DeRozan said he's still committed to Southern California, however he said that he's looking at North Carolina and Arizona State as well. Following the Tournament of Champions last weekend he took a visit to UNC and claims a scholarship offer from the Heels.

Teondre Williams has a solid mix of schools from the South. Alabama, Illinois, Georgia, Florida State and Cincinnati are all making him a top priority.

Will Brown listed Oklahoma, Baylor, Southern California and Illinois, as the schools showing him the most attention.

Roger Franklin is hearing from Arizona State, Minnesota, Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, LSU, Georgia Tech and Baylor.
