De’Anthony Melton and the Crespi Basketball team appears to be headed on a crash course for another state title. The guard, who has signed with The University of Southern California, has to be a sleeper in this years’ class of 2016 top recruits. After watching him dismantle two very well coached squads in Viewpoint and St. John Bosco this season, both of whom were undefeated at the time(at the time of this post), I think it’s safe to say we are looking at a special squad and a special individual in Mr.Melton.
At times he runs the point, can be seen spotting up in the form of a solid 2 Guard, hits the boards like a soldier, and makes eye opening put backs – helping his bigs on both ends of the court. And did we mention that he has the best hands in high school basketball?? Yes sir.
Couple that with a very good supporting cast, and a coach that covers all bases, Crespi could be looking at a second consecutive state basketball championship in 2016.
