Louisville Target: Fab Melo

Every year there’s one big man everybody knows can turn a good team into a great team. That person in the 2010 recruiting class is Fab Melo, a 7-foot, 270-pound prospect from Brazil who will play his senior year at Sagemont High in Weston, Fla.

The good news for University of Louisville basketball fans is that Mr. Melo has Rick Pitino’s team high on his list of possible teams. The other news is that he is also said to be considering Florida, Florida State, UConn and Duke.

That list seems to expand and contract every few days with Syracuse, Georgetown and Kentucky once included on the list. The only constant has been U of L among the favorites.

Card fans have been down this road more than a few times.

Overdue. Let it happen.

  1. From what I have been reading… Pitino has had his eyes on this player for sometime.
    It would be a great addition to the men’s line up.
    I guess we can cross our fingers and hope for the best.
    Dare I say — Fab would be Faboo…? Hhmmm

  2. Hope we get him, but I have a gut feeling he winds up at UConn. Calhoun has a well establish track record with getting big men into the NBA.

  3. It’s pretty much Louisville or Syracuse for Melo. UConn has lost a lot of ground.

  4. At least with Calhoun it’s not his mental health is that’s questionable.

    Pitino’s may be after the facts come to light.

    1. Dude, your comments are as lame as you are. We get it, Pitino did some shady stuff with a lady, at least he is not like Calipari who does it with his team and players. Once again you are pissed that Calipari and his cronie world wide wes weren’t in on this kid. Get off this site loser!

  5. I dont think he will go to UConn because their coach is really sick. He’s the only thing keeping that program alive. Once he’s gone UConns going to struggle. Who cares if kentucky has all these recruits? The only reason Calipari won his conference last year was because he was in a weak conference. I think its UofL or Florida.
