The 9th annual Pangos All-American Camp will be held on Friday-Sunday June 3-5, 2011 @ Cal State Dominguez Hills (Carson CA). The camp will be held in Carson CA this year due to water damage to the Cabrillo High School (Long Beach CA) gym floor which is not expected to be repaired in time for this year's camp.
Out-of-area campers and media will be staying overnight at the beautiful 374-room Renaissance Long Beach Hotel as well as the 4-star Hotel Avia in downtown Long Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean and within walking distance of dozens of restaurants, lounges, clubs, theaters and shops.
More info about the Renaissance Long Beach Hotel can be found online at:
This year's camp will be headlined by the Top 3 prospects in the national 2012 class: 6'6" Shabazz Muhammad (Bishop Gorman/Las Vegas NV), 7'0" Isaiah Austin (Grace Prep/Arlington TX) and 6'10" Andre Drummond (St. Thomas More/Oakdale CT). Other elite top national players scheduled to join this terrific three-some include 2012 stand-outs Grant Jerrett, Brandon Ashley, Archie Goodwin, Tony Parker, Marcus Paige, Ricardo Gathers, Shaq Goodwin, Savon Goodman, Gabe York, Kris Dunn, Nino Jackson, Tyler Lewis, Katin Reinhardt, Robert Upshaw, Anthony Bennett, Xavier Johnson, Torian Graham, Rosco Allen, Winston Shepard, Jordan Goodman, Stefon Jankovich, Adam Woodbury, Sim Bhullar, Dominic Artis, Charles Mitchell, Zena Edsowoman, Nick Stauskas, Alex Caruso, Jordan Tebbutt, Negus Webster-Chan, Ben Carter and Demetris Morant, 2013 stars Chris Thomas, Aaron Gordon, Kuran Iverson, Jabari Byrd, Ikenna Iroegbu, Isaac Hamilton, Nigel Goss-Williams, Tyree & Tyrel Robinson, Eric Cooper, Stephen Domingo, Treshaun Bolden and Maurice Kirby, 2014 prospects Stanley Johnson and Shaqquan Aaron and special 2015 talents Tyler Dorsey, Horace Spencer, Malik Newman, Stephen Zimmerman and Karl Towns.
Several more top players are in the process of being confirmed.
This national camp has served as a "coming out" party for many top past and current HS all-americans and well as a showcase for many more national "sleepers". The last five camp MOPs have been James Harden (Arizona State/Oklahoma City Thunder/2009 NBA Draft #3 pick), Brandon Jennings (Milwaukee Bucks/2009 NBA Draft #10 pick), John Wall (2008 Rivals.com #1 player/Kentucky/ #1 pick of the 2010 NBA Draft), Harrison Barnes (Scout.com & ESPN.com's #1 2010 player/North Carolina) and Myck Kabongo (ESPN.com Class of 2011 #10/Texas signee). The nation's #1 2011 prospect Anthony Davis, Quincy Miller, Brad Beal, DeAndre Daniels and Quinn Cook were also Top 25 Game selections last year.
Dave Miller (formerly a New Orleans Hornets Assistant Coach for Player Development and 20 year-plus NCAA Division I assistant) will again be on hand to be the "Lead Camp Instructor". Legendary Tom "Tootie" Cirincione (of ABCD Camp fame) will also be present to provide campers with seasoned skill instruction.
The event is an invitation-only event and only top nationally ranked players will be invited. The camp is open for viewing to the public. There is no admission charge.
As has been the case in past years, a large contingent of national/regional media and scouts are expected to attend. Media/scouts attending last year include Dave Telep, Paul Biancardi and Joel Francisco (ESPN.com), Evan Daniels (Scouthoops.com), Jerry Meyer and Eric Bossi (Rivalshoops.com), Van Coleman (Hot100Hoops.com), Clark Francis (Hoop Scoop), Frank Burlison (Long Beach Press -Telegram), Brick Oettinger and Rob Harrington (PrepStars.com), Ronnie Flores (ESPNRise.com), Patrick Stanwood (Nothing But Net Magazine) and Sean Ceglinsky (ESPNLA.com), Thom Jones (TJ Sports), Victoria Sun (Associated Press), and Matt Rodriguez (BallisLife.com).
