The No. 29 prospect in the Class of 2007 averaged 21 minutes, 8.3 points and 3 rebounds for a Purdue team that made a run and hit the jackpot with an NCAA Tournament bid, despite its youth.
Martin made the decision to pursue other options. Obviously with a player of his stature and potential, the interest has been great. "Some (schools) have called and that sort of thing," Martin said. "I just haven't narrowed it down. I'm focusing on school and making sure that I leave with good grades."
At this stage, Martin indicated he hasn't given thought to the "perfect situation" and would prefer to be close to his Valparaiso home. "I'm not dead set on it but I would like to be close enough to where my parents can see me play. If the right situation presents itself that might be an option for me."
As for having to sit out a season per transfer rules, Martin will make the best of it. "It'll be tough but I'll just use it as a positive and work on getting stronger and better. When I can play I'll be a better player than before."
