Martin having strong senior season

Jaron Martin has played well as a senior at West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade, leading his squad to a successful season. What kind of player is the 2013 point guard and who has shown interest?

With a 14-4 record, it's been a successful season so far for West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade and leading the way for the Eagles has been 5-foot-9, 165-pound 2013 point guard Jaron Martin.

Chaminade head coach Todd Wolfson is happy with how his senior is playing.

"He's really taken control of our team," Wolfson said. "He's calling the plays for us which is a big step for us. He understands what it takes to win and has put the team on his back.

"The kid is putting up unbelievable numbers and is doing a great job. He's really efficient in what we're trying to do and does a great job of getting his teammates touches. He's spreading the ball around and he's scoring the ball."

Martin is averaging 21.5 points, 6.5 assists and 3.2 rebounds, shooting 55% from three, 60% from the field and 92% from the free throw line, per Wolfson, who says that the point guard's biggest strength is his ability to score.

"He's not your prototypical point guard but he's a scoring guard," he said. "He's had some big games for us and can score from everywhere. He can really fill it up. He needs to work on his defense a little bit but he's a lot better than he was last year."

Schools showing interest in Martin thus far include Tulane, St. Bonaventure, Western Michigan and U.C. Riverside.

Martin's strong academics will make him even more attractive to colleges.

"He had a 3.5 GPA at of the end of his junior year and a 3.9 this semester so it should go up," Wolfson said. Recommended Stories
