"I think he visited there two weeks ago and unofficially for Midnight Madness," Cecil Kirk coach Anthony Lewis told Scout.com. "They began to really get after him during Midnight Madness. He had other visits lined up and then he made his choice."
Melvin was part of Lake Clifton's 2009 state championship team. He brings a warrior approach and the ability to punish rims. Lewis sees a special athlete, ala former St. John's insider Anthony Glover.
"He has that freakish athleticism that does not come around. When you have that type of athleticism, everything else comes really easy. He's also going to be a very good perimeter player."
Melvin will sign his national letter of intent in the spring.
