Team Melo's Noah Locke Aims At Official Visits After Dropping Final Eight

A jersey hanging up in his Maryland bedroom serves as a reminder of where this journey truly began. Noah Locke remembers those few days of the distant past like they were last week and how they has propelled him to greater heights entering his final prep season.

Before the 6-foot-2 sharpshooting combo guard for 2018 dropped 18.3 points per game for Team Melo (MD) during the Nike EYBL season this past spring and before scoring 20 or more points in 14 games as a junior for McDonogh (MD), Locke made his unforgettable splash into the spotlight at the DMVElite 80 Camp a couple summers ago.

“That was the camp that really started everything with me,” he said. “That was one of my first opportunities to really showcase what I could do, and I took full advantage of it. It just went up from there.”

Ever since, and despite not earning the camp invites or rankings of some of his peers -- something that drives him daily -- Locke has buried his doubters one smooth 3-pointer at a time and put out his final eight schools earlier this month.
