Jefferson High School located in Portland, Oregon has produced some quality talent throughout the years. Many players have went on to college and then to the NBA. 2014 6’3 guard Silas Melson is on a mission to follow that same path.
Melson has drawn attention from many schools lately and it’s only the beginning.
“Gonzaga and Colorado State have offered. Washington, Oregon, Oregon State, Pepperdine, San Francisco, Idaho have all shown interest. “
The Jefferson Demo has the athleticism to take it to the rim and finish in the lane with contact for a lay-up or a monster dunk. Not only is Melson athletic but he has range well from beyond the three point line. Melson displayed a killer crossover that led to get his shot off or break down his defender at the Les Schwab Invitational.
Melson plays with Team ICP during the AAU season. Left Coast Recruiting will follow Melson’s recruiting closely.
