Che Evans (Team Melo)
Many years ago and wing forward surfaced from Baltimore’s Townson Catholic named Carmelo Anthony. This smooth forward then attended famed Oak Hill Academy before leading the Syracuse Orange to their first NCAA National Championship. As we know Anthony later entered the NBA and became a perennial All Stars.
Fast forward to 2015 and now Baltimore has another lanky forward standing 6’5 with a perimeter game reminisced of Anthony, his name is Che Evans. Evans is an 8th Grader and member of the Nike sponsored Team Melo (What A Coincidence). He currently ranks #3 in our National Rankings and showed over the summer that he was worth his spot. He starred in several events including the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom and CP3 Camp. Evans has the size and the skill set to be something special down the road of he continues to work hard. He already has college scholarship offers from Arizona State and St. John’s. Recently the big dogs at Duke University has shown some early interest.
Dwayne Wise of Team Melo thinks he has a good one oh his hands. “Che right now reminds me of my younger cousin Mark Karsher as an 8th Grader but more athletic. He has a great natural feel the game and excels in the half court. Karcher finished as one of the best ever in Baltimore as a high school player. Che potentially in my opinion will be the best overall talent in the class because of his IQ mixed with his size and skill set” he finished.
Basketball Spotlight will be getting a good look at Evans and his Team Melo teammates as they have entered the loaded Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic.
