Scouting Report on Cole Aldrich

by Jerry Meyer - 06/19/2006
A big bodied center, Aldrich is a space eater in the lane. He is tough to score on around the basket and is a good defensive rebounder. Limited offensively right now, Aldrich is developing a go-to move with his left handed jump hook.

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."
