Scouting Report on Chase Budinger

by Jerry Meyer - 05/03/2005
Extremely bouncy and athletic, Budinger excels at filling the lane in transition and either attacking the basket or spotting up behind the three-point line. Also has a nice touch from the midrange. Ball handling and passing have room for improvement. Although he is not a physical player at this point, his active feet and jumping ability make him a good defender and rebounder.

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."
