Moses Moody among Pangos first-day standouts

LEWISVILLE, TX – Texas wasn’t the only state with strong representation among the 200-plus athletes on hand Saturday for the first day of the annual Pangos All-South Frosh/Soph Camp at the Mac Sports Center in this suburb of Dallas.

Approximately 40 of the campers were, collectively, from Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Tennessee, giving the event perhaps its strongest-ever non-Texas presence since its 2006 debut.

Among the first-day standouts from the group were Class of 2020 products Moses Moody (6-foot-5/Little Rock, AR, North) and Gerald Doakes (6-1/Jacksonville, AR, Lighthouse); Chris Moore (6-6/West Memphis, AR, West Memphis), Jordan Tilmon (6-0/Pine Bluff, AR, Watson Chapel), Caleb London (6-4/Conway, AR, Conway); Chanse Robinson (6-1/Grambling, LA, Lincoln Prep), Matthew Murrell (6-3/Memphis Whitehaven) and Rodney Mason (6-5/Bartlett, TN, Bartlett), as well as soon-to-be Class of 2021 standouts in Sekou Kalle (6-10/Louisville Aspire Academy) and Devon Barnes (5-11/Lawton, OK, Christian).

The 15-year-old Moody (who attended Parkview in Little Rock as a freshman) was one of just five players from the national Class of 2020 who played in the Pangos All-American Camp at Cerritos College in Norwalk, CA, last June.

He was as impressive as anyone on hand Saturday as each of the camp’s 22 teams played twice apiece.

And, of course, the host state was quite well-represented, too.

Among the very best from the Texas Class of 2020 who made the trek to Lewisville were Greg Brown (6-8/Austin Vandergrift), Cade Cunningham (6-6/Arlington Bowie) and K.J. Pruitt 6-3/Coppell Universal Academy).

The even wraps up Sunday, with camp game tipping off at 9:30 in the morning, and all-star games going at 1:15 p.m. (Top 60) and 2:15 (Top 30).

“I’ve known Frank since he was a student at Long Beach State and no writer ever worked harder at studying and understanding basketball. When I was coaching I always put more stock into what he said about (high school) players than anyone I knew. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the best there is at evaluating the potential of basketball players.”
Lute Olson, Hall of Fame and NCAA Championship Winning Coach

"I have known Frank for 15 years and there is no one outside of those in the Clippers' organization that I trust more than Frank when it comes to player evaluations."
Neil Olshey, Portland Trail Blazers' General Manager

“Frank Burlison has always been a proponent of my talent and, even more so, of my potential – far before it was evident to most. Even as a smaller and determined player who was being overlooked by most high-major colleges and national scouting services, Frank always served as a friendly voice who got me into the door to most events to help me prove my talents.”
Russell Westbrook, the No. 4 overall selection in the 2008 NBA Draft out of UCLA and an all-star guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder
