Scouting Report on Richard Hendrix

by Jerry Meyer - 08/18/2004
Hendrix’s strength, agility, and post moves make him a lethal scoring threat down low. He can also hit the face up jumper comfortably to 17-feet, and he can pass the ball. Defensively his 7-foot-2.5 wing span and his quickness to the ball make him a very good shot blocker, especially from the weakside. Lateral quickness in defending on the perimeter is not a strong suit.

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