Scouting Report on Jelan Kendrick

by Jerry Meyer - 09/14/2009
A three position perimeter player with length, Kendrick has a surprising burst of athleticism. Whether it is off his first step or off a hesitation dribble, he can get to the basket with the best of them, especially going right. His extension at the rim and array of floating shots allow him to finish over bigger defenders. Also a high level passer and adequate shooter, Kendrick does need to improve his strength, but often his length makes up for any deficiency in strength.

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."
