Scouting Report on Michael Beasley

by Jerry Meyer - 08/17/2006
The hallmark of Beasley's game is versatility. He is a 6-foot-9 combo forward with both a powerful game and a finesse game. The future of the NBA calls for forwards who can run, defend multiple positions and stretch the defense on the offensive end. Beasley fits this mold to a tee. He is effective in transition both as a finisher and handler. He is capable of switching on the high ball screen and guarding a perimeter player while also capable of banging down low against the big boys. Offensively, he can score at all three levels and is a terrific scorer and passer off the dribble, causing match up problems for his opponents.

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."

The talent in this year's McDonald's All-American game is solid with Austin Rivers, Marquis Teague and Michael Gilchrist, but nothing measures up to the 2007 event that featured Derrick Rose and a slew of other future NBA stars. Rivals.com analysts Jerry Meyer and Eric Bossi compare the McDonald's talent to previous years, along with taking on other topics, in this week's Ask the Experts.
