Four Schools In The Mix For Selby

Josh Selby had a productive spring playing with Team Melo and proved himself as one of the better point guards in the 2010 class. This past weekend he took a trip to an SEC program and he'll head to a Big East school next week.

It's tough to keep Josh Selby down.

Just before the Tournament of Champions, the 6-foot-2, 175-pound lead man suffered a bad fall while attempting a dunk in a pick up game. The result of the tumble was a sprained wrist, a concussion and, according to his AAU coach, 20 stitches.

Although he was held out of playing at the TOC with Team Melo, he managed to play this past weekend at Tennessee's elite camp and Selby led his team to the camp championship.

"It was great," Selby said of his experience in Knoxville. "It was a fun experience. There were a lot of good players there and we got to play some games. It was fun."

Throughout the spring, Selby showed off a high major game. The Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha Catholic standout is a special athlete, that is becoming one of the more talented point guards in 2010, which is loaded with quality guards.

"The spring went great," Selby said. "I was just out there having fun. I was trying to make my teammates better."

"I thought he had a great spring," Carlton "Bub" Carrington, of Team Melo, said. "We got off to a slow start, but he started to show his resilience in Pittsburgh. I just thought he proved he was definitely one of the top two or three point guards in his class."

To go with strong interest from Tennessee, Selby's spring play has led to attention from Texas, Louisville and Florida.

He plans to visit the other three schools this summer. Selby's next trip is to Louisville on June 22nd. Texas is trying to get him for their elite camp the following weekend, while the Gators want him to come down after AAU Nationals for their camp.

"I'm blessed to even go through this," Selby said of the recruiting process. "Some guys never go through this, so I'm blessed."

"It's tiring because I have to remember all of the college coaches names and it's hard and tiring," the four-star prospect said. "But it's a pretty good thing though. It's a great experience, so it's pretty cool."

The rest of the summer promises to be a busy one for Selby. He'll be at the Nike Hoop Jamboree next week, then NBPA camp a few days later, before participating with Team Melo the rest of July.
