Brandon Martin is coming back to the Palmetto State to play college basketball.
Martin, a 6-foot-6 forward, signed to play at USC Upstate. He is the son of South Carolina men’s basketball coach Frank Martin and one of five signees for first-year coach Dave Dickerson’s signing class.
Martin played a post-graduate year this season at St. Thomas More School in Connecticut. He played in high school at Cardinal Newman, where he averaged 14 points and 10 rebounds during his senior season with the Cardinals.
Martin might have a chance to go up against his father and the Gamecocks this season. USC Upstate and South Carolina are scheduled to play this year, according to college insider Jon Rothstein. No date for the game has been set yet.
