"He committed to Seton Hall," Mississippi Elite Christian Academy coach Victor Evans said. "It looks like he's going to sign before the week ends."
"I was sort of surprised when I heard it," Evan continued. "He had just visited Nebraska and the visit went good and he was set to visit Seton Hall next week. It kind of caught me off guard."
"Bobby Gonzalez just did a really good job throughout the recruitment," Evans said. "They did a really good job speaking to Melvin and I think that was one of the deciding factors."
"I think it's a good situation for Melvin. There's a lot of exposure he can get in the Big East and playing in New York city. I'm sure all of that played a part in it."
Oliver averaged 20 points and 11 rebounds a game last season, while leading M.E.C.A. to a 20-5 record.
