Scouting Report on Gary Johnson

by Jerry Meyer - 06/19/2006
A power player who does almost all his damage right at the basket, Johnson relentlessly attacks the rim and draws a large number of fouls. Plays with a big time motor and is relentless on the glass, but as an undersized low post player, he must extend his range and improve his perimeter skills to ensure success at the next level.

Jerry Meyer serves as a national scout and recruiting analyst for He played at Lipscomb University where be became college basketball's all-time career assist leader. Meyer earned Mr. Basketball honors in the state of Tennessee as a high school junior and senior. He has served as an assistant coach at Vanderbilt and also co-authored the book, "Basketball Skills and Drills."
