Rivals doesn't update that often, I wouldn't go off of them.

Or better yet, go with a site that you know updates as often as possible -
Recruit Lists » Martin, Hassan
This seems like a good time to remind everyone that RecruitLists needs as many clicks as possible. Help SvrWxCy - the more popular his site becomes, the better for him, and probably every cyclone fan too.
Martin is in the dictionary by the recruitnik/scout buzzword projectable. He's not that tall, but is young enough and has the arm length to think he may still grow. He shoots FTs like Chris Dudley. He may come into school as a freshman (like Eric McKnight) and we may think how could our coaches ever think he was possibly worthy of a scholarship. Or with some good coaching and maturation, he may turn into that 6'7-6'8" post player that becomes a huge star at a mid-major and you wonder why few power conference schools offered.
I know that describes most recruits, but I think it applies to Martin much more than most. And the risk of missing on a guy like him is not that big, considering the yearly turnover in CBB, and the post players we have coming back. I'm very content to take a project with our young bigs and the 2 stud guards we already have in the class. I hope we get him.
Battle of the Boroughs is going on in NYC this weekend... In which Martin and Whitehead are bothe playing in (possibly also Shane Rector, etc.). Zach Braziller just tweeted that Martin had 26 pts and was "sensational".
Plenty of other tweets about his play can be found. Sounds like as usual, he "punished the rims".
And Doc - I agree, he's "project-like" and at 16 yrs old, he could grow some yet.

Nice article on Hassan Martin from NY Post/ Z. Braziller about recent play (Adidas Super 64 & this past weekend's Battle of the Boroughs)...

Also, Martin's profile: Recruit Lists » Martin, Hassan
Interesting that he mentions both Rhode Island & Providence's coaching staff in regards to good relationships, hard to say if it really means something though. He has not visited any of the campuses yet, so I have a feeling that the visits are going to be key in his recruitment.
If he's considering coming all the way to Ames we must have made an impression.
This is like the 3rd straight time I've seen a recruiting article that say that we're one of the schools recruiting Whitehead the hardest, yet he has made no mention of visiting us. Hopefully me makes it out here for a visit.
