Scouting Report on Jamil Tucker

by Jerry Meyer - 05/05/2005
Tucker is best on the wing in transition where he can knock down threes or take the ball to the basket in a couple dribbles. More of a small forward than a power forward, Tucker does need to improve his ball handling and passing and develop a midrange game. Can be very good around the basket when he plays hard. His effort on the defensive end needs to improve.

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."
