St George, UT – One of the most anticipated events of the year is taking place this weekend in Utah. The Pangos Junior All-American Camp goes from Saturday, March 6th until Sunday, March 7th. The camp offers a look at some of the top 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in the country. The two-day event, run by recruiting legend Dinos Trigonis features skills, 5 on 5 play, and all-star games featuring the top players in each class. In this article, we take a look at some of the standout players from the 1st day of the event.
Koa Peat 6’7 PF Phoenix, AZ 2025 – If you want to argue that Peat’s not the top overall player in the class of 2025 I’m fine with it, but I want to see the other guys. Dominate is the word that best describes him. He’s a big-time explosive athlete that reminds me a lot of the middle school version of Duke commit Paolo Banchero. Peat had several highlight dunks on the day including an off-the-backboard dunk that made every court stop dead in it’s tracks.
Gavin Hightower 6’1 SG Northridge, CA 2025 – Hightower was the best iso player on the day. The California guard made it look easy, whether he was getting to the rim or knocking down open jumpers He has a smooth and efficient game. Hightower never looked out of control on the day, getting to his spots easily and finding ways to score.
Mason Brown 6’0 PG Las Vegas, NV 2025 – Brown’s athletic ability is what impressed me the most about him today. He wasn’t throwing down jaw-dropping dunks, instead, he used a quick and explosive first jump to get off the floor and grab both offensive and defensive boards. His bounce was a nice addition to his PG skills, which including paint touch ability, ballhandling, and vision.
Alexander Lloyd 6’3 SG Hollywood, FL 2025 – Lloyd spent most of his time on Saturday on the rim. He is fearless when attacking the rim, almost killing himself on a 1-foot two-handed dunk down the middle of the lane. The 6’3 wing has other skills, but I was so impressed with his ability to get off the floor on Saturday, that skill alone was enough for me to make him one of the day’s standouts.
Avian Webb 5’11 PG Atchison, KS 2025 – Baby Trae Young was an assassin. The scoring PG was able to score in a variety of ways, including using floaters and runners in the lane. He showed off a slick handle and was impossible to keep out of the lane. Like the Atlanta Hawks star, he also showed off range on his jumper, putting pressure on defenders who backed off.
