Scouting Report on Courtney Fortson

by Jerry Meyer - 09/28/2006
Undersized but a dynamic player, Fortson is an excellent competitor who defends and rebounds. Offensively, the lefty is fast with the ball and can finish at the rim. He shoots it well off the dribble, but does have room to improve the consistency of his outside jumper.

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."

Latest News loves UA haul04/25/2008

Courtney Fortson, you can't measure him in an evaluation standpoint because of what he is made up mentally, that dude works on another level. He's a 5-10 guy who is cut from granite. I don't know if I have seen a 5-10 guard rebound the ball like he does. - Justin Young Come inside to find out what Rivals thinks of UA's class.
