Ones to Watch: The talent pool is rich and deep on the West Coast. The Pangos All FROSH SOPH Camp held at Cerritos College Sept. 24-25, 2016 was an indication of such. Underclassmen from across Western States showed up and showed out – showcasing skillsets that seniors would love to have. One player that stood out among the rest was 6’8 Forward Darren Jones.
The kid brings a lot to the table – the ability to control the paint, pulling the bow and arrow from 3pt range, and finishing on the break – a true jumping jack indeed. The sophomore to be has already been offered by UNLV and they’ll be many more suitors to come, that’s for sure. He also plays football and is a standout receiver for Cajon High as well. We would like to see him in the weight room a bit more but that’s all we have to say about his game at this point. So far so good, as he picked up Co-MVP honors during the Pangos tourney.
A few clips of this soldier boy in action. We only had a chance to see the last day of the camp and the Top 30 game but he was impressive indeed. Word on the street is that he won’t be eligible to play this season after transferring from Upland. Keep your head up young man…sometimes things are a blessing in disguise.
Become great at what you do.
