Scouting Report on Tyler Smith

by Jerry Meyer - 10/03/2005
Always a tough defender, rebounder and scorer around the basket, Smith has made huge strides in improving his perimeter skills. Smith is adept at attacking the basket with either hand and can keep the defense honest with his ability to knock down a three-pointer. Smith, being a tireless worker on his game, should further improve his ball handling and develop a midrange pull up with another year of 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."
