Pangos Camp: Texas Player Review!

For the fourth consecutive year I attended the Pangos All American Camp in Las Vegas hosted by Dinos Trigonis. It's always a good evaluation setting for me as I get to evaluate some of the premier players in the country and some of the top Texas kids and see how they fare in a premier individual environment. I’m taking a dive on the Texas players that participated in Las Vegas and give my personal evaluation of how they played.

Hudson Greer, 6’6 Wing 2025 - Lake Travis: Showed big time vertical pop especially in the open court. Hudson has been dealing with an injury for most of the spring and is now getting back to normal form in regards to movement. Displayed 3-point shot making of the catch and overall plus activity on the court. 

Francis Chukwudebelu, 6’10 C 2025 - Prestonwood Christian:  Had a solid outing. Wished to see more but I understand camps and bigs are a mixed bag. Has improved his frame, showed quality footwork inside when operating back to the basket and is someone that showed he can make open threes off the catch. Sometimes floated more than to my liking, but when he’s showing inside/out game and upticking the rebound attempts, he is productive. He showed that in spurts. 

Jermaine O’Neal Jr., 6’5 Wing 2025 - Dynamic Prep: Didn’t get to see all of Jermaine’s repertoire at the camp. Struggled to find a rhythm consistently, but when he’s connecting from deep and feeling comfortable on the court, he brings a lot to the table. Rebounding, passing, ability to attack closeouts and get to the rim. Also on the defensive end, make plays as an on-ball defender and help guy.

Jeremiah Green, 6’2 PG 2025 - Denton Guyer: Attacking, physical guard that gets downhill. I thought he played fairly well as he got to the paint plenty, finished around the rim decently and showed improved playmaking abilities. Shot mechanics have improved as well. 

Jared Harris, 6’4 SG 2024 - Silsbee: Harris is a threat in transition, fast with the ball in his hands and in the half-court utilizes his quick first step to blow by defenders. As an isolation scorer, Harris can find ways to create space in multiple ways and has a deep scoring package around the arc. With him playing so fast at times, his 3-point shooting can be inconsistent due to not getting feet set and under control.

Jaden Toombs, 6’9 C 2025 - Dynamic Prep: Toombs, Hudson Greer and the next two I’ll mention after Jaden had the best showings among Texas players at Pangos. Toombs displayed improved agility, was active on the glass, showed face-up game and blocked shots. Toombs is not explosive vertically, but he’s smart and quick twitch, which allows him to collect rebounds in traffic and score versus length. Toombs' weight loss and transformation of his body is allowing him to move quicker and guard the pick-and-roll better. 

Robert Miller, 6’9 PF 2024 - Pasadena Memorial: Couldn’t participate in the All Star Game but he showed why his stock has been rising this spring and summer. Athletic, mobile, adequate handle with size and has upside as a scorer and overall shooter. Could be more efficient with his touches, but you can see what the overall package could become down the road. 

Keitenn Bristow, 6’7 SF 2024 - Wichita Falls: A lot to like with this one and his best basketball is ahead of him. Good positional size, arm length and plays with a motor! 3-point shooting accuracy will improve as mechanics are in a good place, but could use a little tweaking. Bristow was active on the glass, was fearless when attacking the rim and absorbing contact and is someone who is a threat from the perimeter. Good to see him thrive in this setting.

Jalen Shelley, 6’7 Wing 2024 - Prestonwood Christian: Shelley possesses a lot of talent but he left me wanting more. A legit wing that can play-make and generate own look but just inconsistent with results. However, with that being said, I do believe he’s starting to turn the corner and his best basketball is ahead of him. Can’t knock the talent and when he’s on, he can impact winning with his scoring and passing. 

Doryan Onwuchekwa, 6’10 C 2024 - Faith Family: Seen him play better this spring but I’ll say this again, camps and big men are a mixed bag. Not a lot of post feeds happening, have to really get buckets by out-running your opponent in transition and being on the offensive glass. Onwuchekwa is a skilled big man with high feel for the game and is unselfish. He did have spurts of being assertive and I got to see how much of a load he is in the paint and the improvements in his outside shooting.

TreVaun Clark, 6’6 Wing 2026 - San Antonio Wagner: One of the few 2026’s so I didn’t have crazy high expectations for Clark, but I wanted to see how he competed and he did just that. This was a good experience for him and for me evaluating him versus older guys. A big wing that can stretch the floor and is an effective slasher. Will see him at Pangos in the future and it won't surprise anyone if he's one of the better players at the prestigious camp.
