Scouting Report on Jerryd Bayless

by Jerry Meyer - 05/04/2006
A premier athlete and talent, Bayless can score from the perimeter as well as any player on the circuit. Always able to create a shot with his high elevating pull up jumper, Bayless is particularly dangerous coming off the high ball screen where he is a threat to score off the dribble from 23-feet and in. He has the potential to be an outstanding defender, but does not always give defending and rebounding top priority. Possesses definite NBA upside.

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."
