Scouting Report on Shawn Taggart

by Jerry Meyer - 08/23/2004
Taggart, who is a long, aggressive player and unafraid to mix it up inside, has the athleticism and skill base to be a terrific small forward. He certainly, however, needs to refine his skills with the ball and improve his range before he is ready to be a small forward at the next level. Already a very good power forward, he will be even better at that position as he gets stronger. Bottom line, Taggart is a very good combo forward prospect.

Jerry Meyer serves as a national scout and recruiting analyst for Rivals.com. 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."

The 6-foot-9 forward who ascended to being a top 35 prospect in the nation largely on his defensive prowess has been more about offense in the summer fun league. The basketball is just part of Taggart's acclimation to central Iowa, which is going well.
