Scouting Report on Al-Farouq Aminu

by Jerry Meyer - 08/28/2006
A smooth athlete with a feel for the game, Aminu is quite skilled with the ball. He has a soft touch out to the arc, passes well and can put the ball on the floor effectively. As he gets stronger, he will become a more dominant rebounder and scorer.

Jerry Meyer serves as a national scout and recruiting analyst for Rivals.com. 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.
