Schools come to visit Price-Martin

Schools continue to keep a close eye on four-star power forward Malik Price-Martin.

For four-star power forward Malik Price-Martin of Miami (FL) Pace High School this season is going to be a new experience. Pace is full of young players and the 2013 recruit has to be a leader. It is a valuable experience for Price-Martin who has had several schools come down recently to see him play.

"We're a young team, but we are getting better," said Price-Martin. "We haven't started off the season great, but we have a tournament starting (today) so it is a chance for us to get some wins and to play well as a team."

Being one of the older players on the squad, Price-Martin is being asked to lead the team. It is a new experience for him, but one he is adjusting to.

"Sometimes it is frustrating because a lot of our team doesn't have varsity experience and they don't know what to do, but I just have to let them know that it will be alright if they make a mistake and to help them correct it," Price-Martin explained.

Recently a trio of schools have been by to see Price-Martin.

"Louisville, Alabama came to my game last week, and Syracuse came in a couple of weeks ago," said Price-Martin.

For the beginning of practice Price-Martin made a visit to Louisville, and he came away impressed with what he saw.

"Yes I went to Louisville and I had a good time," he said. "The arena is huge, I liked the dorms, and I liked everything about the school and the visit in general."

Price-Martin then added that the Cardinal coaching staff would like to see him again on campus.

"They have just been telling me how bad they want to get me up there on a visit and how bad they want me to be a part of their program," said Price-Martin.

A school that is just now starting to get seriously involved is Alabama. The Crimson Tide have made multiple trips down to see Price-Martin and have really picked up their interest in him.

"They just started recruiting me when the season started and they have been down to see me several times," Price-Martin explained. "They want to get me there to see the campus and show me what they have to offer."

When it comes to the Syracuse Orange, it is style of play that appeals most to Price-Martin.

"Syracuse has been recruiting me for a while now," said Price-Martin. "I like them a lot, and the way they play defense fits my game well."

While those three schools have been the most recent to stop by, others such as Ohio State, Connecticut, Miami, Florida State, and others all remain in play for his services.

"My options are really wide open," said Price-Martin. "There is no favorite right now. I am just seeing what happens and if anything else comes along before I rush into a decision."
