Frankamp shines at Pangos

During the past three years, Conner Frankamp has earned a reputation for himself as one of the best shooters in the Class of 2013 - a cold-blooded assassin from beyond the arc. But those who have seen the 6-foot, 170-pound star from Wichita (KS) North play know there's much more to his game than that.

During the past three years, Conner Frankamp has earned a reputation for himself as one of the best shooters in the Class of 2013 - a cold-blooded assassin from beyond the arc.

But those who have seen the 6-foot, 170-pound star from Wichita (KS) North play know there's much more to his game than that. He's a point guard, crafty with the ball, capable of handling with either hand with equal effectiveness and possessed of excellent court vision.

Last weekend, the rest of the country discovered just how well-rounded Frankamp's abilities are, as he took home co-MVP honors at the prestigious Pangos All-American Camp.

"My focus is out west and I don't see the national kids like Frankamp as often, but I was really surprised and impressed with his overall feel for the point guard position," said Scout.com national recruiting analyst Josh Gershon. "Add that to what I already knew was a big-time ability to shoot, and you have a player that should be really successful on the next level."

Frankamp went into the weekend with high expectations for himself, and felt he met most of them - even if his outside jumper wasn't falling at its usual high clip.

Undeterred, the Kansas commitment appreciated the opportunity to put his other skills on display.

"I for sure feel like that," Frankamp said, when asked if he felt his reputation as a shooter overshadowed his ability to play the point. "In high school I have to score more for our team to win, but if I have a good team around me I like distributing and passing more."

Next weekend, he will attend either the Chris Paul "CP3 Elite" camp in Winston-Salem, N.C. or the Under Armour Grind Session event in Atlanta.
