Scouting Report on Deon Thompson

by Jerry Meyer - 09/13/2005
A wide bodied post player, Thompson does most of his damage around the basket. With quick feet and soft hands, Thompson is able to score going to either shoulder with his back to the basket. He appears destined to be a double-double impact player on the high major level.

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."
