Fab Melo: The Next Big Thing
This kid is 7'0 280 and he's a rising senior, with a post game that would make some NBA big men jealous. Im telling you, we are probably talking about the # 1 pick in 2 years (barring injury). He will make whatever team he goes to (his top 3 list is UConn,Louisville and Florida right now) a Final 4 contender immediately. Remember this name, he will be a great one.
I actually saw him down here in the Cuse, He took a trip to the University.
Probably was on of his unofficial visits.There in his top 5, but he says he has the most interest in UConn and Louisville.
He had to sit out last year for high school b/c of floridas transfer rules. but rick pitino and jim calhoun spotted him while recruting jason peters (i think thats his name). i wouldnt be surprised if he lands at louisville. His post game is his strongest point.
i have seen him in some videos he doesn't look like a very good athlete but he did seem to have a very polished game.
I mean he's 7'0, and he's athletic enough to dunk with authority off 2 feet without moving so it really doesnt matter. And he runs the floor ok. Freak athleticism would just be icing on the cake
His name is Fab Melo? Cool name.
His real name is Fabricio De Melo.
