Long Beach, CA – The Pangos All American was held May 31 – June 2, 2013 at Cabrillo High School in Long Beach, CA. Camp director Dinos Trigonis did a great job of attracting the top talent from all over the country.

120 players attended the 3 day camp and attracted media and scouts from all over as well.

My Top 5 NO BRAINER (Adam Silver List) prospects were Rashad Vaughn, Stanley Johnson, Josh Perkins, Chris McCullough and Isaiah Briscoe, with the 6th man going to Emmanuel Mudiay.

The Top 2015 Camper: Isaiah Briscoe & Carlton Bragg – both played at a high level all weekend.

 APRIL-MAY2013 357Rashad Vaughn

The Top 2016 Camper: Thon Maker – The 7′ footer has great upside and understands the game.

The Top 2017 Camper: Deandre Ayton – The only one his age in camp & could play in college now.

Best NBA prospect: Rashad Vaughn

Skilled 4-Man: Chase Jeter, The 2015 forward reminds me of two former, University of Arizona post players Grant Jarred and Channing Frye. Jeter is only 15 years old and more skilled at this time. 

APRIL-MAY2013 361Isaiah Briscoe

Most athletic prospect/follow footsteps: 2014 Daniel Hamilton and headed to UCONN, the last player to attend Pangos All American Camp and attend UCONN was Andre Drummond. Hamilton’s older brother Jordan plays for the Denver Nuggets and Isaac is going to play next year at UTEP.

Las Vegas bound: Dwayne Morgan is a steal for the UNLV Running Rebels in the class of 2014, Morgan gave a verbal a while ago and expect to see a high energy impact player. The 6 foot 8 wing can do it all and can score, the coaching staff did a great job getting this recruit to play for a high major program.

NBA connection: 2014 campers Ethan Telfair & Stanley Roberts both have NBA ties. Telfair’s older brother Sebastian (Toronto Raptors) plays in the NBA and Roberts dad Stanley, played several years in the NBA.

The camp is one of it’s kind and provided great hospitality for the players, media and scouts. For future events held by Trigonis go to
