Scouting Report on Richard Hendrix

by Jerry Meyer - 08/18/2004
Hendrix’s strength, agility, and post moves make him a lethal scoring threat down low. He can also hit the face up jumper comfortably to 17-feet, and he can pass the ball. Defensively his 7-foot-2.5 wing span and his quickness to the ball make him a very good shot blocker, especially from the weakside. Lateral quickness in defending on the perimeter is not a strong suit.

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."

Alabama big man Davis won't be back07/17/2006 College Basketball

Alabama's starting frontcourt will look a lot like it did last season. The NCAA's decision to deny power forward Chuck Davis' appeal for a fifth year of eligibility this morning ensures that. Davis tore his ACL during his senior year last season after playing in 13 games. Without Davis, the Tide relied on big men Jermareo Davidson and Richard Hendrix and that duo returns for 2006-07.
