Scouting Report on Harrison Barnes

by Jerry Meyer - 07/15/2008
A well put together wing prospect, Barnes is both a threat on the perimeter and around the basket. He has a smooth shooting stroke from three, can attack the basket off the dribble and has a feel for passing the ball. He rebounds the ball well and can score in the post. Defensively, he can guard up to three positions. The complete nature of his game makes him an elite prospect in the class of 2010.

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."
