Scouting Report on Willie Kemp

by Jerry Meyer - 05/05/2005

Offensively, he can run a team as well as execute the high ball screen. Although a pass first point, he is capable of taking games over with his scoring ability.

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.
