Scouting Report on Austin Rivers

by Jerry Meyer - 09/02/2008
A big time scoring threat, Rivers specializes at scoring off pull up jumpers from behind the arc and off a quick first step to his right. He also has an array of finishes going to the basket. His high basketball IQ also makes him a dangerous passer. On the defensive end, he does have room for improvement.

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."
