This week 2017 Center Cameron Martin informed Prep Hoops Oklahoma he would be taking his talents north for his final grassroots season to play with MOKAN Elite. Martin made the move for several reasons. 

"I felt like it was a good fit," Martin said. "I wanted to experience the EYBL and Peach Jam."

Recently, Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Superstar Kevin Durant signed on to be an official sponsor of MOKAN Elite, a Kansas City based grassroots program. Durant adds to the MOKAN program, which was already thought of very highly across the country. 

"Having KD sponsor the program is very exciting," Martin said. "There will be high expectations for us." 

This season Martin moved high schools from Yukon to Norman North. With the move Martin has become very close with 2017 Point Guard Trae Young. Last summer Young played for MOKAN Elite in the EYBL. Young teamed up with Michael Porter to lead MOKAN to an appearance in Peach Jam.

The relationship Martin has built with Young had a very large role in his decision to leave the Oklahoma Wizards for MOKAN Elite.

"We have just clicked," Martin said.
