Clint on Kendrick Perkins

Clint Jackson of ACCToday on Kendrick Perkins:

Vitals: Kendrick Perkins, a 6-10 center, hails from Beaumont, Texas. He tips the scales at a hefty 260 pounds and he plays his summer basketball with Hal Pastner's Houston Hoops alongside another 2003 star, Ndudi Ebi. Perkins attends Beaumont Ozen High School. He averaged 18.9 points last season as a sophomore. He was named the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches 4-A Player of the Year. Perkins is considered the best big man in high school, regardless of class.

Scouting Report: Watching Perkins in action, it doesn't take long to realize that you're seeing someone special; someone who's going to be a very good college and/or NBA player. His broad shoulders and mature physique are able to force his will on defenders on the low blocks. He is an excellent back-to-the-basket center that has at least a half dozen scoring moves on the inside. Perkins has a jump-hook that he could hit with his eyes closed, a nice up-and-under move and instinctive footwork. He looks like he's already been to the Pete Newell Big Man Camp, if you get my drift. He's an excellent rebounder, an above average shot-blocker and his hands are as good as Elton Brand's. Perkins shoots the ball with good touch from 15 feet and in. Basically, he's just got all of the tools, the body and the ability to dominate when he so desires to.
