Observations at Pangos 2012 All-American High School Basketball Camp

June 7, 2012

Long Beach, CA -- One of the most prestigious events in the summer basketball circuit did not disappoint, as the 2012 Pangos All-American camp had a deep collection of talent on hand.

One young player showing signs of development is Class of 2015 sophomore Tyler Dorsey from nearby Ribet Academy in Los Angeles. Along with his increasingly strong 6-4 body, Dorsey is evolving into a premier point guard with shot-making skills. His focused mindset on defense is also impressive. At this rate, Dorsey should be a very good floor leader for a college team three years down the line.

As for the older, more seasoned participants, three players stood out: Connor Frankamp, Isaac Hamilton, and Christian Wood.

Frankamp, a 6-1 Kansas commit, showcased his ball-handling skills and shooting range, and for the most part was quite effective.  At this point, he is on his way to becoming a versatile backcourt performer who can play both guard positions.

Isaac Hamilton, who has yet to commit to a university, displayed both ballhandling and shooting skills, and played very well with Christian Wood, especially in fast break situations.  Hamilton, who has been on the recruiters' radar for more than three years now, has found his niche as a combo guard-scoring dynamo type in the mold of the Dallas Mavericks' Jason Terry.

Wood, on the other hand, is a high-flying, long wingspan-type power forward, who finishes everything on the boards. In addition, he has a reliable outside shooting touch for a 6-9 player. The next step in his progression would be for Wood to develop two or three go-to moves in the half court set, as well as to continue adding more muscle on his rather thin physique.
