Scouting Report on Tywon Lawson

by Jerry Meyer - 07/16/2004

He has a good feel for getting the ball to his teammates and can keep the defense honest with his catch and shoot from behind the three point line. He has all the tools to step in and run a team at the elite high-major level.

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.
