Scouting Report on Amir Johnson

by Jerry Meyer - 08/24/2004
Johnson can run and jump and will become an even better athlete as he gets stronger. He still has a raw post up game, but he has a jump hook and the skill base to develop a solid post up game. The mechanics on his face up shot and free throw need work. With his length and athleticism, he has a good upside.

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."
