One guard in the transfer portal is continuing to garner interest from programs around the country. Guard Chris Martin from Presbyterian announced that he would be entering the transfer portal after a season in which he played in 31 games and averaged 10.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.4 steals per game while shooting nearly 42 percent from the floor.
Martin will have two years available after sitting one but will be bringing a winning mentality that will do what needs to be done on the court.
“I’ll do whatever it takes to win,” Martin told Phenom Hoops. “I’m definitely a two-way guard that is going to guard the other team’s best player. Downhill guard that can make plays for players around me. Comfortable on and off the ball and played positions 1-3 throughout college.”
Coppin State has already offered but schools like Hawaii, CSU Bakersfield, CSU Fullerton, NC Central, Appalachian State, and FIU have all expressed interest his way.
“They are saying they are interested and trying to figure everything out with the chaos.”
Looking back to NC Top 80 with Martin:
“Chris Martin is a quick, strong and aggressive scoring point guard. He is so effective getting into the paint utilizing his superb quickness. Martin has the ability to score at will and be an effective floor general. He did a nice job of getting his teammates involved while still knocking down shots from the perimeter. Martin changes speeds and direction well and is so difficult to contain in the half and especially the open court. More importantly, Martin plays with great confidence and displays a high motor and has the ability to be an intimidating “on ball” defender.”
