No Update on Melo

I spoke to Sagemont Academy (Fla.) head coach Adam Ross yesterday regarding 7-foot Fabricio de Melo, a 2010 prospect quickly rising in the rankings. Better known as Fab Melo, the big man has visited Connecticut, Louisville, Syracuse and Florida. When I wrote a feature on Melo in late May for NBE Basketball Report, Ross told me that those four were the finalists for Melo's services.

According to Ross, there are no new updates on Melo, and he has not visited any other schools. There are rumors that he plans to make a decision before July, but Ross said there is no timetable for Melo to pick a school.

"At this point it's day to day," Ross said in a text message. "I'm anticipating a decision soon but it's possible that he waits until the fall."

Melo is ranked as the No. 3 center in the class of 2010 by Rivals.com, and the No. 23-ranked prospect overall. Scout.com has him ranked No. 5 and No. 25, respectively.
