Alexander Surprises At Pangos

Daniel Alexander made the trip from Texas to California for Dinos Trigonis' Pangos All-American Camp and he made the most of the experience.

The Pangos All-American Camp gave us a good look at a number of west coast standouts, but the biggest surprise of the event was Daniel Alexander, of Dripping Springs (Tex.) High.

The 6-foot-8, 190-pound big man has a high skill level, sees the floor well and is a terrific passer, especially in the half court setting. Alexander didn't have a bunch of big scoring outputs, but he did the little things in what can be a wild setting.

"I thought that I played OK, maybe not up to my full potential," the 2010 product said. "I was trying to be a distributor more than a scorer this time, but I think there's always room for improvement. I played OK."

"I felt the skill level was a little higher than places that I have been before," Alexander continued. "I felt fairly comfortable and it was just a lot of fun."

Going forward, strength is an area for improvement, but Alexander has already recognized that and is spending the summer working with a personal trainer to put on weight and get stronger.

Alexander will also attend some elite camps this summer. He plans to camp at Texas A&M, Marquette and Texas. To go with interest from those three, he said he's also heard from USC and Baylor.

"[Recruiting] is still in the early stages," Alexander said. "We've gotten phone calls and my dad handles those. We've gotten a couple of phone calls and a couple of letters."

If Alexander continues to build off of his performance at Pangos, then he'll likely have plenty of options when it comes time to make a decision.
