Scouting Report on Jrue Holiday

by Jerry Meyer - 08/28/2006
A true combo guard, Holiday is the most complete guard prospect in the 2008 class. He is an explosive athlete, yet efficient player with a smooth stroke from deep and the ability to slash to the basket and finish in a variety of ways. In fact, he is actually a better driver and finisher with his left hand. On the other side of the ball, he can lock down either guard position and is a strong rebounder.

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. He has served as an assistant coach at Vanderbilt and also co-authored the book, "Basketball Skills and Drills."
