Pangos top 2010 performers

There weren't many underclassmen at the Pangos All-American camp, but a handful that did make it to the Galen Center showed their stuff.

Justin Young breaks down the top class of 2010 prospects in the camp.

Pangos Top 2010 Performers
Kendall Williams, PG
It could be argued that the UCLA-bound point guard was the best player at his position over the course of the weekend. Williams showed good athleticism, good court sense and a good shot from deep. Everything seemed to be working for the rising junior.

He's a charismatic player that captured his team's attention with his point guard skills and natural leadership abilities. There is almost a similar feel to his game like 2008 UCLA recruit Jerime Anderson in the sense that both are understated and simple at the right times and both know when to turn it on and take over. Williams showed that ability at the Pangos event, which was admittedly his best event of the spring so far.

Gary Franklin, PG/SG
It's been a strong spring for the 6-foot-1 combo guard from Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei High School. The rising junior was good from start to finish and played about as consistent as one could in a camp setting.

Franklin hit nearly every open jumper he took and was crafty with the ball as his team's primary ball-handler and set-up man. His best strength is scoring the basketball but seeing what he can do as a lead guard in some instances was encouraging.

Daniel Alexander, PF
The 6-foot-8 big man took full advantage of the stage that the Pangos was. The young man from Dripping Springs (Texas) High School was the top underclassmen surprise at the event and one of the top surprises overall in the camp.

Alexander showed off a number of skills that should translate well to the high-major level. He's a fine athlete with good bounce off the floor, a good shooter, good on the blocks, good in the midrange and not bad on the glass. He'll need to continue to tighten up his ball-handling but overall, it was a fine weekend of work for the Texan.

Dwight Powell, PF
While he didn't necessarily jump out in one particular game to onlookers, he did enough over the course of the weekend to make this list. The 6-foot-8 forward from Florida's IMG Academy showed off a solid post game in the camp. The Toronto native has some advanced moves in the post and went to them often.

Once he becomes more aggressive on the glass, he'll become an even more intriguing prospect because he's just an average athlete. His offensive skill set is his best strength. Overall, Powell's weekend of work was enough to put him on the "must see again" list for the summer.

J.T. Terrell, SG
When it came to knocking down perimeter jumpers, the North Carolina guard was probably the best in the class of 2010 in that category. Terrell's specialty is the perimeter and he proved his worth in that regard in the camp.

While he was just a hair under how good he usually is with his AAU team, Terrell still earned respect from his peers at the camp. He showed his scoring presence in the final day of the camp, going for at least 17 points in each of his final four games of work. Diversifying his offensive attack will only make him a bigger threat down the road.

Jeremy Tyler, PF
Sure, the five-star rising junior was only at the camp for one day and you could argue he shouldn't be counted as one of the top performers because of that. But when he was at the camp, he was very impressive.

The knock on Tyler is an on again, off again desire. The desire was there on Friday night of the event. Tyler showed flashes of his immense talent in the post. The big man scored with his back to the basket, hit an elbow jumper or two, passed very well and crashed the boards. Stringing together more high-level performances like he had in his quick appearance at the camp is a must for him in the process of improving his enormous potential.
