Scouting Report on Derrick Jasper

by Jerry Meyer - 05/02/2005
Very powerful for a perimeter player, Jasper loves to attack the basket going left. Handles the ball well enough to be a point guard but is also very effective at the small forward position with his rebounding ability. Guards any perimeter position well. Outside shot needs work.

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."
