No one in WMass is going be able to guard him this season.

Bringing this to the top. Are we still in on Martin? I think he may be able to reclass to 2019 unless his grades caused him to fall into 2020. I bring him up because he is talented and he's from Springfield. Our new Associate Head Coach more than likely knows him and his mentor, Robert Kelly.

He’s really fallen off the face of the earth. Same with that Dimon Carrigan kid from Boston who went to juco out of hs. Or I might just be too lazy to do any research but haven’t heard very much about either local kid in a long time.

Still seems pretty highly regarded, 3 star. Looks like DK has offered him too :)

He has a profile and is ranked in the low 200s. At one point he was in the Top 50 for his class and since then he’s attended several schools and I haven’t heard his name mentioned once in the past few months in terms of interest from schools. I may have missed it but this is a kid who was really highly regarded (I know the Rivals AAU program seemed to have really high hopes for him) who has gone really quiet. That’s all I’m saying.

A chance for MM to network with the area's high school coaches. Also, Martin is first team all Western Mass so he will probably be there.

Loads of talent, but it appears he has some issues to work through. This is St. Joes of West Hartford. Didn't want anyone to panic and think Calhoun was in Philly.

^ Good for Taelon. Despite my feelings about Calhoun as a by product of the UMass-puke-on perspective, I can’t deny that he’s an outstanding coach who has put quite a few players into their NBA.
