Terry Martin is excited about getting to Lubbock

RaiderPower.com caught up with Terry Martin Jr., one of Texas Tech's top signees of the 2005 class, to discuss his future plans.

When Terry Martin committed to Texas Tech in May of 2004, he knew he would have a chance to compete for playing time very soon. That chance has now come as he will head to Tech May 29. "I will be getting to Texas Tech this Sunday. My roommate will be Justin Wilkerson," says Martin.

Terry has been working hard this off-season to prepare for the rigors of Big 12 basketball. For many freshmen, the jump from high school to college ball is quite daunting, but Terry is receiving help from a very good source. "I have been working out with my dad this spring to help get me ready for the coming season," Terry explains. An ex-NBA player, Terry Martin Sr. is helping his son develop his game. Martin reports that he is also developing physically, as he has "boosted [his] weight up to 198 pounds."

With the graduation of Ronald Ross and Curtis Marshall, the Red Raiders will be losing two of their top three guards, so the rapid development of incoming guards will be crucial for another successful season. There will be plenty of playing time to be earned, which has Terry eager to get to the Hub City. "I'm really excited to finally be heading out to Texas Tech."
