Scouting Report on John Henson

by Jerry Meyer - 09/24/2007
Henson is a budding prospect. At a very thin 6-foot-10, Henson is an intriguing combo forward prospect. His weight would be more of an issue if he were primarily an interior player, but Henson prefers to face the basket. He is developing a reliable three-pointer, and although his ball handling has room for improvement, he does have the ability to slash to the rim. Defensively, his length causes problems.

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."
