Scouting Report on Ryan Kelly

by Jerry Meyer - 10/01/2008
An extremely skilled face up four man, Kelly does his best work in the high post area. Defenders have to respect his ability to knock down three while Kelly also has the ability to beat defenders off the bounce with his pull up jumper in the midrange being his most dangerous weapon. He is also an adept passer and can score in the low post. Defensively Kelly moves his feet well, but he does need to add strength to become a better low post defender and rebounder.

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."
