Team Melo Prepares to Make Noise at Pitt Jam Fest

Team Melo 2023
As the Hoop Summer Circuit begins to finally ramp back up after a long hiatus; one of the nation's biggest Showcases is prepared to take center court April 23-25 in Pittsburgh, Pa. The Pitt Jam Fest basketball tournaments run by the largest basketball company in the world. Its events offer programs competition against top national programs, live streamed exposure to college coaches and top media outlets.

BALTIMORE - Michimich -- With an average of 180+ College Coaches viewing online both during and outside the Division 1 Live Period, Hoop Group offers a platform for players to be recruited to all levels.

After having an opportunity to view Baltimore based Team Melo's (EYBL) 15U, 16U and 17U last weekend in Delaware; Team Melo is prepared to introduce another talented group to the national circuit this weekend for the first time.

Team Melo - Black 16U features a combination of size, length and skill starting with 6'4 combo guard Danny Parsons (2023) from national powerhouse Baltimore Polytechnics Institute; who is an athletic 3-level scorer with a huge upside.   Kamal Francis 6'2 (2023/Glenelg Country School) is a cerebral lead guard who has garnered some mid-major interest and makes his living as a distributor, catch and shoot guard who can hurt you in the mid-range.  The team boasts an array of versatile/high-flying wings in Cam Horton 6'5 (Nationally ranked St. Frances Academy), Aaron "Uno" Finley 6'4 (Baltimore Polytechnics Institute) and 6'4 Jayden Baker who is sneaky athletic and a marksman from deep.  Daniel Okonah 6'1 (St. Maria Goretti) offers backcourt depth and is expected to surprise with his IQ and all-around game.   The front court offers an abundance of size and length starting with 6'8/260lbs Omarion Reid (Baltimore City College), Do-it-All forward 6'6 CJ Johnson (St. Paul's School), Mekhi Abdulaleem 6'7 (Loch Raven High School) a rebounding machine and defensive stalwart and Adam Fox 6'6 (Nationally Ranked Powerhouse Dematha Catholic) who is just as likely to put you on the block and finish as he is to step behind the arch and bury one from deep.  If this wasn't enough fire power coming back from the protocol is the 6'5 ultra talented Kyree Smith (Baltimore City College) a lockdown defender and big time scorer  and 6'9 Ian Robinson a versatile comb forward with huge upside.  The twins Brian and Ryan Tita both 6'6 wings are still getting acclimated to the system and will look to make an impact as the season progresses.
