Scouting Report on Derrick Jasperby 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.
