Syracuse feeling just Fab-ulous
Fab Melo is off the board. The 6-foot-11 big man from Brazil has committed to Syracuse, according to sources close to the situation.
The nation's number five player picked the Orange over Louisville, according to the same source. Melo attends Sagemont High School in Florida and was one of the top big men on the summer circuit this year.
Melo is leaving for Brazil on Tuesday night and wanted to end his recruitment prior to leaving the country.
For Syracuse, he joins Oak Hill big man Baye Moussa Keita, Philly guard Dion Waiters and combo forward C.J. Fair in the 2010 class.
