Video: Marquis Melvin

Marquis Melvin, rated as the No. 29 safety prospect in the country, remains solid in his decision to attend Duke. <I>TheInsiders.com</I> was on hand recently as Whiteville's best player put on a show.

Already measuring in at 6-foot-2, and 198 pounds, Marquis Melvin will likely play around the 220-pound mark in college. In fact the Duke coaching staff has indicated that he will look for immediate playing time at the strong safety position. When you factor in a bench press of 310, and a squat max of 385, he certainly looks the part of a big time recruit.

Running a reported 4.45 forty yard dash, and rated as a 3-star prospect, Melvin has many considering him the jewel of the 2005 recruiting crop for Duke.
