Las Vegas, Nevada – The 20th annual Pangos All-American Camp brought together some of the nation’s best players. They competed at Las Vegas (NV) Bishop Gorman High in front of NBA and national scouts alike.

The Pangos All-American Camp has served as a coming out party for many top past and current high school All-Americans, as well as a showcase for many more national sleepers. 

Some of the many current and former NBA Pangos All-American Camp alumni are James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Brad Beal, John Wall, Andre Drummond, DeMar DeRozan, Kyle Lowry, Jrue Holiday and Zack LaVine.

On3 was sitting baseline for the full three days. We take a look at the 2024 stock risers the day after the event concluded.

Most Outstanding Player – C Yves Missi

Pangos All-American Camp was Yves Missi’s first exposure camp he has taken part in. The 6-foot-10.5, 230-pounder didn’t take long to display why he will be one of the top prospects in the 2024 cycle. Missi was the most physical interior player at a loaded camp, and fought for rebounds outside his area. He looked to play through the chest of defenders, and finish with powerful dunks. Missi’s motor will likely never be in question. He was productive on both ends of the floor with the confidence to play over his left shoulder in the paint. Missi will enter the next 2024 rankings update from On3 later this summer.

Recruitment: Nearing 15 offers, including Michigan, Kansas, UCLA and St. John’s.

PF Pharaoh Compton

The near 6-foot-7, 235-pound power forward with long arms and strong hands would be the “come out of nowhere” award winner at the event. Compton was easily the best rebounder at the event. He battled for position and won those battles consistently, and rebounds outside his area. His game is about brute force and toughness around the rim currently. Compton’s offensive game will have to expand, but his motor will easily make him a high-major player. Compton flashes some Montrezl Harrell in his game.

Recruitment: Arizona State, Washington State and Texas A&M are early offers. UNLV reached out to his circle during the event.

PG Tahaad Pettiford

Point guard Tahaad Pettiford had the ball on a string against quality competition earning a spot in the Top 30 Cream of the Crop game. Pettiford was as quick as any 2024 guard with the ball in the half court, with the ability to get in the paint and create for teammates. He placed consistent pressure on the defense with quickness and change of pace. He flashed the feel for creating space to get clean looks on the perimeter. Pettiford is just as impressive4 in the open floor as the half court. Not only does he make plays for teammates, but also showed the ability to finish in traffic. His ability to play above the rim impressed as a 5-foot-11.5 point guard.

Recruitment: UConn, Seton Hall, UCLA, Maryland, Rutgers and St. John’s. He recently made a visit to UConn with UCLA up next.

CG Robert Hinton

Combo guard Robert Hinton arrived at the Pangos All-American Camp as a virtual unknown on the national scene. He left the camp as one of the biggest risers, regardless of classification. The 6-foot-4 Hinton plays the game with a high basketball IQ, ideal pace and an impressive toughness for his age. He’s displayed the ability to win off the bounce, and finish in traffic against taller and longer players. Hinton made the correct reads and plays for three straight days at Bishop Gorman High. He also competes on defense with quick feet, physicality and the effort to recover and get back in the play when initially beaten.

Recruitment: Hinton went from a prospect with an offer from UC San Diego to a high-major prospect in a three day period.

SF Amier Ali

Ali entered the Pangos All-American Camp as the No. 24-ranked prospect in the On3 Consensus for the 2024 class. And he only cemented himself as one of the top prospects in the cycle. The 6-foot-8 small forward is one of the top three-point shooters in the country, regardless of classification. He can be a bit streaky due to shot selection at this point, but he oozes upside. That upside included a seven three-point, 30+ point game Monday. A big part of Ali’s development will be off the bounce in the next few months. Ali has to be defended out to 24-feet, and now will have to take his game off the bounce to the next level to progress toward his high ceiling.

Recruitment: Ali has double-digit offers, including Kentucky, Kansas, Memphis, Alabama, Ohio State, Texas Tech and Kansas State in April.

PF Morez Johnson

The 6-foot-8 power forward doesn’t receive the level of fan fare as 2024 teammate James Brown, but he absolutely should. Johnson is both powerful and skilled with very good feet, flexibility and agility for his size and age. The frame consists of long arms, broad shoulders and big hands. He can with with physicality rebounding the ball, and make plays off the bounce against opponents. His turn and face game in the mid-range gave opponents issues because of his ability to knock down the jumper, or put the ball on the floor. Johnson flashed the ability to rebound outside his area as well. Johnson is currently No. 36 in the On3 Consensus for the class of 2024.

Recruitment: Johnson committed to Illinois in November of 2021, and told On3 he is 100% solid in his pledge to the Illini.
