Key Stats

Draft Prospect Outlook:

De'Anthony Melton wasn't an above-average scorer at Southern California and struggled with consistency from long range, but he showed promise in spurts of being an NBA-level defensive standout. Melton missed all of last season after being declared ineligible as a result of the FBI corruption probe, so he's not played competitively since the 2016-17 season.

College Recap: 

• Sat out for his entire sophomore season in 2017-18 while USC indefinitely suspended him and investigated his ties to the FBI's investigation into college basketball that led to the firing of USC assistant Tony Bland.

• Earned honorable mention Pac-12 All-Defensive Team; after averaging 2.0 steals per game, second in the conference, as a freshman in 2016-17.

• Late blooming prospect out of Encino (Calif.) Crespi who chose USC over San Diego State.
