Pangos: Day 3 Rundown

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – John Wall took home the Pangos Camp All-American MVP trophy, while Clarence Trent and Michael Snaer kept up their great play on day three.

John Wall, PG – One of the nations best took the court in Los Angeles, and although he didn't play his best, he still managed to dominate at times. His speed and athleticism is just on a different level than most other junior prospects. Wall played well in the all-star game and took home the camp MVP trophy.

Michael Snaer, SG – Every time we saw Snaer this weekend he competed, it was no different on day three. His strong play carried into the all-star game, where he eventually took home the games MVP trophy. He has deep range on his jumper, attacks the rim hard and competes every possession.

Hollis Thompson, SF – Thompson's big weekend continued on day three. The rangy, athletic wing showed off his jump shot today. In his morning session game he knocked down a spot up three-pointer and in the Top 20 All-Star game hit a handful of deep jumpers. The more we watch Thompson, the more we like him. He defends, rebounds and can score in a variety of ways.

Joe Burton, C – Burton capped off a solid weekend of camp with a big performance in the all-star game. The 6-foot-7, 270-pounder did his best Kevin Love impersonation by tossing out full court outlet passes to streaking teammates. Burton also showed his vision from the post as he found cutters for lay ups a number of times. Passing aside, he's a big kid equipped with a nice pair of hands and a soft touch.


Trent Skies For A Dunk (Scott Kurtz)
Clarence Trent, PF – Much like Franklin, Trent put together an impressive weekend. He showed an ability to knock down mid-range jumpers on a consistent basis and also finished well at the rim. He continues to expand his game and is certainly an intriguing prospect.

Roger Franklin, SF – The 6-foot-5 forward had his usual solid day, he did, however mix in a few more three-pointers than normal. Overall he had a great weekend at Pangos camp and an argument could be made that he had as good of a weekend as anyone.

Carlos Lopez, PF – UNLV locked up a pretty good prospect in Lopez. The 6-foot-10 big man used both hands around the rim, ran the floor and hit the glass. Adding muscle to his frame should be a priority, but he's mobile and has good touch around the rim.

Cory Jefferson, C – You can't teach length, and that's certainly something that Jefferson has plenty of. The 6-foot-9 slender big man uses his long arms to swat shows and snag rebounds. Jefferson's mid-range jumper has gotten more consistent and he's shooting it with more confidence.

Dwight Powell, PF – In the morning session of games, Powell managed to standout. The 6-foot-9 big man primarily did his work facing the basket with mid-range jumpers, but he also managed to show off a nice jump hook. We'd like to see him mix it up more in the paint, but we like his skill and touch around the hoop.

After a rough start to the weekend, Darius Morris picked up his play. At 6-foot-3 he's got good size for the guard spot and his jumper is becoming a little more consistent.

Guy Landry has some big time hops. The 6-foot-6 forward goes to the rim with some intensity and dunks with power.

Despite having a sporadic shooting weekend, Anthony Brown looks like a big time prospect. He's equipped with a set of long arms and is clearly a talent.

Over the course of the weekend, Marcus Ruppel grew on us. The Glendale (Ariz.) Raymond Kellis standout shot the ball well on day three and appears to be a solid athlete.

Joe Burton said he has strong interest from Utah, Gonzaga, San Diego State, Marquette, Central Florida and Arizona.

It's still the early stages of Dwight Powell's recruitment, but he said he's picked up early interest from USC, Stanford, Villanova and Georgia Tech.

Brandon Jennings and DeMar DeRozan both made appearances on the final day of the Pangos All-American Camp. The two handed out the MVP trophy's following camp.
