Scouting Report on O.J. Mayo

by Jerry Meyer - 05/10/2006
A combo guard with the total package, Mayo has a physical and imposing presence on the court that resembles Chauncey Billups. Adept at creating space for his jumper and hit difficult floaters in the mid-range, Mayo is very difficult to defend. Capable of guarding multiple positions, Mayo is also able to ignite the fastbreak with his defensive rebounding.

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."
