Scouting Report on Josh Smith

by Jerry Meyer - 07/18/2008
Blessed with superb hands, Smith gobbles up rebounds and scores efficiently around the basket. Quick off the floor for his size, Smith is also a strong shot blocker and positional defender. His challenge is to maintain his conditioning and consistently play with a competitive motor.

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."
