DECISION: Martez is in the final stages but wants to make sure of his decision.

STRENGTHS: Getting to the basket, good handle and is a tough matchup because of his size and skills.

WEAKNESS: More consistency in his jumper

EVALUATION: Martez had a nice season for Coach Tony Bergeron at American Christian. They play just about every one of the top schools Prep. He averaged 12 points and eight rebounds a game.

On a team dominated by perimeter star players, he was always in the mix providing decent production.

He can get to the basket and finish. He presents matchup problems for his defender because his handle is good and he has nice size. He is very strong in the open floor. Martez and Fordham right now looks like a good mix but other schools mentioned are still very interested and have made it known to him.
