Hart: Jimmer Fredette Will Be Impact Player

Reporter Mike Sullivan has story on upstate guard who will play division one basketball next season ...

Jimmer Fredette, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Glens Falls High School in Glens Falls, N.Y., finished up in style for his high school team. Fredette completed his career as the all time leading scorer in Section II.

"His team lost by a few points in the state playoffs," said Albany City Rocks AAU program director Jim Hart. "He had an outstanding career on the high school level. And he was great for us too."

Fredette, who will play next season for BYU as a freshman for the 2007-2008 season, is a player that Hart believes will be an impact player. "Jimmer can shoot the ball really well," Hart said. "He's going to be an impact player for them eventually."

Jimmer has a diversifed game too. And Hart said BYU will benefit from his high skill level. "I see Jimmer playing the one (point guard position)," Hart stated. "He's shown he can do that."

MIKE SULLIVAN'S VIEW ON THE INDIVIDUAL GAME OF JIMMER FREDETTE: If Fredette can make himself a consistent threat by taking his dribble to the rim, he should be able to produce plenty of points on the college level. He is a hard worker and someone that can dent a zone with his perimeter shooting.
