Scouting Report on Kevin Love

by Jerry Meyer - 06/19/2006
With a hard edged competitive spirit and fundamentally solid game, Love is a bruiser around the basket. He has advanced footwork and can finish with either hand. He is a strong position rebounder, and his outlet passing is off the charts. With a pure shooting stroke, Love also possesses three-point shooting range. His footspeed on defense, however, is limited as well as his overall athleticism.

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."
