Cleveland Melvin is a 6’8’ 210lb small forward that has demonstrated explosive athletic ability. With a large wingspan Melvin has also shown a knack for blocking shots down low. Recently the class of 2010 wing backed off a verbal commitment to UConn and reopened his recruitment.
Last week Melvin received an introductory call from Duke Coaches. The Duke staff let Melvin know that they are still looking to fill a couple openings at the small forward position for 2010 and wanted to gauge Melvin’s potential interest in playing for the Blue Devils.
Over the next few weeks Duke Coaches will continue to evaluate Melvin. Meanwhile, Melvin plans to take several school visits while determining where his interests lie. Melvin is ranked as a 3 star prospect by both Scout.com and Rivals.com.
