Shooting Guard

Maddox Melancon | 6’4” SG (GA) Eagles Landing High School – 2026

ELITE60 Freshman Showcase – September 24, 2022
Maddox was arguably the most physically imposing guard at the camp. He bullied his way to the rim and showed the ability to step out and knock down outside jumpers. In transition, he’s an adept playmaker that can get over the rim. In half court sets, he picks his spots well and scores it within the flow of an offense. Will be an impact player from Day 1. by Tony Bruton of BucketReel

Melancon has the strength, length and athletic ability to be an impact two-way player. He scored at all three levels and defender positions 1-4 at the Elite 60. The versatility Melancon showed caught the eye of scouts the most. He can become one of the best two-way players in the class of 2026 with consistent development. by Bilal Benjamin of 1st Love Basketball

Maddox is a physically gifted player with a strong frame, ready for the game on the high school level. When it came to scoring at the showcase, he was one of the best that did it. He was a high-volume scorer, and every time you looked around, he was finishing at the rim, in the paint, or with a midrange jumper. He has freakish athleticism and is a high riser looking to make posters. His downhill attack is so tough to guard because he is such a strong player with broad shoulders and embraces most contact on his way to the cup. Once he gets in the paint, he is explosive with his tremendous vertical explosion. He can play on and off the ball and was productive in both positions. His giftedness physically is one of the things that separated him amongst the best at the camp.  Maddox is a physically gifted player with a strong frame, ready for the game on the high school level. by Terry J.
