Despite his public statements to that effect, Melvin has recently begun hearing from the Tar Heels quite frequently, but those inquiries have been rebuffed according to the 6-foot-1, 197 pound corner.
"They are still after me, but there is no question at all in my mind. I want to go to Duke and that's the bottom line. I'm rock solid in that, and I don't think it's going to change."
Since committing to Duke, Melvin has been named as the No. 12 player in TheInsiders.com N.C. Pre-Camp Top 20 and has begun preparing for his senior season with Whiteville while staying in constant contact with his future coaching staff.
"I actually talked with them for a while yesterday about everything. They are just telling me to keep my grades up and to keep working hard every day. That's my goal because I'm going to be a captain for my team next year, and I want to help my team reach its' potential every day and every week."
Melvin, who earned All-Conference honors as a junior, will be attending the Blue Devils' summer camp in mid-June.
