According to the Akron Beacon Journal, Kent State landed a commitment from former Wake Forest power forward Melvin Tabb (Raleigh, N.C./Midland College) on Thursday.
Tabb spend one season at Wake, averaging 1.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14 games. He was dismissed from the team in February 2011 for "conduct detrimental to the team" after being involved in the theft of a classmates iPod and attempting to sell it.
Tabb joins fall signees Khaliq Spicer (Dearborn Heights, Mich./Robichaud), Chris Ortiz (Brooklyn, N.Y./South Kent), Kellon Thomas (Indianapolis, Ind./Southport H.S.) and Darren Goodson (Cincinnati/Pensacola State College) for the Golden Flashes.
