NCAA Basketball: Maryland at Illinois Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

Melo Trimble and Justin Jackson have finished up at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago, which spanned all of last week. Trimble is done playing for Maryland basketball, as he signed an agent when he declared in March, but Jackson’s future should be clear before long.

It’s tough to definitively evaluate their performances, but the consensus seems to be that while Trimble struggled in scrimmages, Jackson quietly did well for himself. There’s probably a better chance of him leaving now than there was at this time last week, although we can’t really pin down those odds.

That was Jackson’s second 5-on-5 showing of the combine; in his first, he had five points and four boards. Trimble went 0-for-5 with five turnovers in the combine’s first scrimmage, but bounced back to notch 12 points and six assists in his second outing.

Here is everything that NBA.com had on the combine, with Maryland numbers here.
