Scouting Report on Kodi Augustusby Jerry Meyer - 09/23/2005
Preferring to play facing the basket, Augustus has a smooth shooting stroke and the length to shoot over defenders. Ball handling and passing skills need improving, tends to play too upright with the ball. Has the potential to be a good offensive rebounder but needs to get stronger. Relies more on his length than on foot speed as a defender.
