USC Transfer Martin Signs with USF

The Miami native will have two years of eligibility remaining

TAMPA, MAY 4, 2016  Head coach Orlando Antigua announced the signing of USC transfer Malik Martin to the USF men’s basketball team on Wednesday.

Martin, a 6-foot-11, 220-pound forward from Miami, averaged 1.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in 6.6 minutes per game last season as a sophomore. As a freshman, he compiled 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds while leading the Trojans with a .524 shooting percentage.

“Malik is long, athletic and runs well,” Antigua said. “He is a skilled forward that will use this season to get stronger. As a senior and junior in high school, he was one of the top guys in the country. After playing two years at USC, Malik wanted to come back to the state of Florida and be closer to home. I’m happy to add such a personable kid to our program. People will really enjoy having him on campus.”

Martin is familiar with the Bay Area, having played his senior season of high school basketball at Faith Baptist in Brandon, Fla. He averaged 19 points and 12 rebounds per game and was the No. 4-ranked player in Florida according to 247Sports.com, the No. 33 power forward by Scout.com and the No. 109 overall prospect according to Rivals.com. Prior to Faith Baptist, Martin averaged 17.2 points per game in his final season at Northeast High in Miami.

Martin must sit out the 2016-17 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He will have two years of eligibility remaining, beginning with the 2017-18 season.
