Scouting Report on Rico Pickett

by Jerry Meyer - 01/04/2006
With a very nice combination of size and athleticism at the point guard position, Pickett is an unselfish set up man with good court vision. Good with either hand on the drive and the finish, he can score both at the basket and from the outside. He does tend to force things to the rim when he gets in the lane, though, and has plenty of room to improve as a defender.

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."
