Pangos: Miller on the rise

LONG BEACH, Calif.- A number of prospects are raising their stock with their play at the Pangos All American Camp. One of those prospects is Quincy Miller who has a chance to be one of the elite forwards in the 2011 class.
Quincy Miller (2011)- The lengthy forward continued to impress with his overall play. He is comfortable shooting from behind the arc and scores going right with the dribble. A potential top ten prospect in his class, Miller will really be a dangerous player if he puts on some weight and becomes a more physical player.
Keala King (2010)- There is a whole lot to like about this left handed 6-foot-5 wing prospect. He is ultra-athletic, plays hard and has an impressive skill set. His off hand behind the back pass on a two on one fastbreak was on off the better plays I've seen this spring. His shot is considered the weaker part of his game, but he has looked good shooting the ball this weekend. King will enter the next Rivals150 with a healthy ranking.
Alex Kirk (2010)- During one of his games Saturday Kirk demonstrated why so many schools are recruiting him. He blocked shots around the basket, came p with loose balls and rebounds, scored on back to the basket moves and even drained a three-pointer. At times it is a challenge for Kirk to keep up with the pace of the game due to a lack of foot speed, but at 6-foot-11 and with his skill set, Kirk brings some definite positives to the court.
Dezmine Wells (2011)- Wells is another prospect with a chink in his armor with his reluctance to shoot the ball from the outside, but the power wing continually makes athletic plays and is relentless in his attacking the rim. His stock has risen dramatically this spring and would go through the roof if he does develop a reliable jump shot.
Adonis Thomas (2011)- Thomas is playing his way into being one of the top wings in his class. He is developing into a player who can make all the plays a high level wing is expected to make.
Terrence Jones (2010)- Jones made a strong statement this weekend to move into the five-star range. Very few players his size can make plays off the dribble the way Jones can, and when he gets his feet set, he is also a three-point shooting threat.
Gary Franklin (2010)- Franklin his a physical combo guard with a deadly outside shot who has really grown into his game and deserves a higher ranking. At one time viewed as primarily a shot jacker, Franklin now has a mature game and brings a high level of confidence and leadership to the court.
J.T. Terrell (2010)- The Wake Forest commitment can get as hot from the outside as any guard in the 2010 class.
Andre Dawkins (2010)- The same goes for Dawkins in that he has one of the top shooting strokes in the class.
Doron Lamb (2010)- And speaking of shooting strokes, Lamb might not have as smooth a release has Dawkins and Terrell, but there isn't a spot on the court where he can't score. On three straight possessions he scored with a turn around jumper in the post, a three-pointer off a cut and a three-pointer off the dribble.
Rickey Scott (2010)- As physically strong as any guard in the 2010 class, Scott scored in a variety of ways primarily in the midrange on Saturday. He has an impressive ability to move back and forth from a scoring mode to a passing mode
Grant Jerrett (2012)- This lanky forward is definitely a prospect to keep an eye on in the 2012 class. He has a solid skill set and plays with a lot of energy.
Charles Mitchell (2012)- His body needs some work, but Mitchell has impressive hands and footwork in the post. He is a natural scorer with touch on the block.
Damien Wilson (2012)- The 6-foot-5 lefty is an impressive young wing prospect.
