Scouting Report on Derrick Caracter

by Jerry Meyer - 08/26/2004
Caracter is a very skilled big man who can pass it, drive it, and shoot it with three point range. With the ball he is very smooth, but on defense his foot speed and shot contesting need improving. If he keeps his weight down and learns to consistently play hard, he could be a premier player.

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. He has served as an assistant coach at Vanderbilt and also co-authored the book, "Basketball Skills and Drills."
