Local Products Travel to Pangos All-American Camp
A handful of local New England prep products traveled to California last weekend for the Pangos All-American Camp, an event that attracted some of the best prospects from around the country regardless of sneaker affiliation and was scouted by 22 NBA teams.
MacDuffie School forward Ismael Massoud, Dexter Southfield big man Charles Coleman, and Wilbraham and Monson guard Idan Tretout were among the 2019 prospects in attendance while MacDuffie's Richard Springs and Sacred Heart's Nate Tabor were among the sophomores. MacDuffie's Franck Kepnang was one of just five freshman to be selected to participate.
Massoud ended up being among the big individual winners of the camp. He averaged over 16 points per game while shooting 50% from the three-point line and was selected for the Top 30 Cream of the Crop Game at the conclusion of the camp along with nationally ranked prospects Charles Bassey, Isaiah Mobley, Kofi Cockburn, Kahlil Whitney, Precious Achiuwa, Wendell Moore, Isaiah Wong, Evan Mobley, Scottie Barnes, Jaden Springer, Posh Alexander, Isaiah Todd, N'Faly Dante, and Anthony Edwards
“6-8 Ismael Massoud can fill it up,” 247Sports director of basketball scouting Jerry Meyer tweeted. “Will score a lot of points in college and probably beyond. Alert and competitive as well.”
Coleman, appearing at the camp for the second consecustive year, was selected for the Next 20 Cream of the Crop Game along with other nationally ranked prospects like Aidan Igiehon, Max Agbonkpolo, Kyree Walker, and Qudus Wahab.
Tabor and Springs were chosen for the Final 20 Cream of the Crop game, which featured some of the best underclassmen in the field including A.J. Griffin, Julian and Justin Champagnie, and Jonathan Kuminga among others.
