From when he originally committed to URI:

URI associate head coach David Cox and head coach Dan Hurley were Martin’s primary recruiters, shadowing him throughout the spring and summer. Hurley watched Martin at July’s Under Armour Association All-American Camp in Philadelphia, and Martin performed well enough to attract late interest from Boston College, Virginia Tech and Maryland leading into the fall.

“He just felt like those guys were loyal to him, recruited him the hardest and showed him the most love,” Johns said. “He loved the vision they had for him when he becomes a Ram.”


And more from when he committed:

“I liked the coaching staff,” Martin said Wednesday. “We really clicked fast. They work hard to get their players better every day. Also the workouts stood out to me. There’s a lot of energy and excitement while work out. I like that a lot. And the school is just a nice setting overall so I plan to go in and win an A-10 championship every year I’m there.”

The Rams will graduate a slew of guards after 2017-18 in E.C. Matthews, Jarvis Garrett, Stan Robinson and Jared Terrell, opening up space for Martin.

“They’re telling me I could go in and play a lot of minutes as a freshman,” he said before the visit. “Coach [Dan] Hurley’s been recruiting me hard.”

Said WE-RI coach James Johns: “He picked URI because he felt a bond with the coaching staff and the vision that they have for him when he becomes a Ram. They were honest with him. He’s a smart kid and he felt like playing at URI would help him on and off the court.

“I trusted the coaching staff as well. I knew they would take care of him and push him. It’s a family environment up there and that’s exactly what he needs.”

Very underrated scorer in a messy iso offense. Good size. Seemed surprisingly disinterested in the season this year. His game would fit nicely for us but not totally convinced Hurley would pull from URI still but who knows. Also would think he’s looking to start anywhere he goes.

We've been talking about the exodus in Wichita, but what about the exodus in Kingston?

Since David Cox has taken over, the team has:

18/19: Christion Thompson (Tulane), Omar Silverio (Hofstra), Marial Mading transfer.
19/20: Dana Tate (Siena), Tyrese Martin, Mekhi Long, Gregory Hammond transfer.

Only 8 scholarships going into 20/21.

Yikes, sounds like WSU.
Jermaine Harris was supposed to be the star of his recruiting class if I recall correctly and yet Martin turned into the man.
What about Fatts? He would be the death knell for them if he transfers.

Hurleys not taking a kid from RI.

never seems to work out to hire a coach to keep a team and recruiting class together.

watched alot of Rhody games and don’t remember anything about this guy. I remember he played but little else.
