LONG BEACH — Last week’s Pangos Premier 80 Showcase kicked off the first live viewing period of July. College coaches filled the stands of McBride high school to watch 80 prospects showcase their skills in the one-day event. We were in attendance for all of the camp games and here are some of the standouts we watched.
Holland was one of the younger players there, but didn’t lack confidence while playing alongside and against older prospects. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard has a balanced and fundamental jump shot both off the catch and off the bounce. His overall scoring package is polished beyond his years with him being an effective driver and finisher around the basket. , 2025, Los Lunas (NM) –
Jason Ofcarcik, 2023, Woodstock Academy (CT) – Ofcarcik is a high motor wing/forward at 6-feet-6 and his combination of that energy, along with his explosive bounce off the floor, made him an effective transition finisher. Ofcarcik rebounds well both in and out his area and can either through a hit-ahead pass to a guard and fill the lane or push the break himself and slash his way to the rim for high percentage baskets.
John Squire, 2023, St. Ignatius – Squire has an intriguing mix of inside-out offensive game. The 6-foot-7 forward is a physical interior scorer who can absorb and finish through contact or make a quick and decisive post move and score over bigger or smaller defenders. When he’s not impacting the game in the painted area, Squire can knock down three-point shots in a variety of ways whether it was in pick and pop situations or when trailing the play in transition.
Kaiden Bailey, 2026, Orange Lutheran – Bailey has really nice feel for the game for such a young point guard prospect. The incoming freshman, who plans on attending Orange Lutheran, plays with good pace in transition and uses changes of speeds and direction to get into the lane and create shots for himself or teammates. Bailey showed advanced feel and decision-making in pick and roll action and knocked down three-point shots and mid-range jumpers with consistency.
Betts has a modern skill-set and frame for a wing/forward. The recent Minnesota-commit has a smooth jump shot from three-point range that he hits with consistency from multiple spots of the floor. What really stood out about his game was his ability to move without the ball and use screens to create space for him to get his shot off. Betts, a rangy 6-foot-8 wing, flashed some interior scoring to go along with his perimeter skill. , 2023, Huntington Prep (WV) –
