Reporter Mike Sullivan was in Disney World for a week watching some of the best talent from across the country ... he takes a look at the individual game of Jerel Scott ...

PLAYER PROFILE: Jerel Scott

HEIGHT: 6-foot-4

WEIGHT: 174 Pounds

POSITIONS: Shooting Guard/Point Guard

IMPRESSIONS OF JEREL SCOTT'S INDIVIDUAL GAME THIS SUMMER:

Scott played with the Albany City Rocks at the Super Showcase in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, an event we covered at the Wide World of Sports complex in Disney World.

Jerel played well, producing 13 points in a game against a very talented St. Louis Eagles AAU team. He showed the ability to drop down a perimeter jumper as well as keep the ball alive on the offensive glass and score on putbacks.

In another event we watched him play -- Rumble in the Bronx:

Jerel was very impressive at the Rumble in the Bronx, showing the ability to play both backcourt positions effectively while competing for Jim Hart's Albany City Rocks AAU program.

Jerel produced 12 points in a 60-59 quarterfinal loss to the New York Panthers, a game the Rocks led most of the way until late in the game. Jerel buried two three-pointers and another long range shot to show his game can damage any type of defense.

WHAT JIM HART SAYS ABOUT JEREL SCOTT'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

"He is a profilic scorer. He doesn't have any weakness. He can score from anywhere on the court."

And Scott proved that Hart was accurate about his thoughts on Jerel's individual game.

MORE OF JIM HART'S THOUGHTS ON JEREL SCOTT'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

He's athletic and has grown five to six inches over the past year or so. There really isn't a weakness in his game. He plays defense, blocks shots, rebounds, and has a good handle. He can also shoot it. He works very hard. He can play and help you win a game in so many areas. And he's a great kid.

COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST:

Fairfield, Massachusetts, Monmouth, St. Peter's. Mostly low to mids, however some highs such as Maryland and Boston College have showed some mild interest.
