Scouting Report on Scotty Hopson

by Jerry Meyer - 08/28/2006
Hopson has the prototypical small forward build and game. He is bouncy around the basket, has a good first step, and can hit the mid-range pull up off the dribble. He can also snatch a rebound and go with the ball or get out on the wing and attack the basket on the break. Still a somewhat raw player who appears to just now be figuring out how good he is, Hopson has a game with a ton of 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."
