Scouting Report on Richard Semrau

by Jerry Meyer - 05/03/2005
Semrau has nice size for a combo forward. Can step out and shoot the ball but ball handling and passing skills need improving. More of an interior defender than a perimeter defender. Good athlete but a little stiff.

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."
