ESPN Player Evaluations

Summer 08: Tyrese Tanner, from Hoover Ala., showed as much promise as anyone on Thursday at AAU Nationals. The 6-foot-2 forward is as gifted as they come athletically. She has tremendous quickness, great leaping ability, foot speed and she utilizes it by playing aggressive with the ball. She scored in bunches so the only real critique may be to play more consistently given her overwhelming athletic advantage against almost any opponent. Tanner put the ball on the floor with both hands and scored in the painted area from the post as well. She has a nose for the ball when rebounding and did a great job of avoiding the defense and reading the ball off the rim on offensive rebounds. She draws fouls and showed the ability to finish through the contact a fair share. As she gets stronger her conversion of and-one plays will only increase. Even more exciting is that she caps off those three-point plays by making the free-throw and her shooting ability will allow her to play the wing in college.
