News broke on Tuesday afternoon that Curie 2018 power forward Treavon Martin has decommitted from Tennessee State. His high school head coach Mike Oliver texted PHI saying
“Treavon Martin is withdrawing his verbal commitment to Tennessee State and is back on board.”
At 6’8” Martin is a long and lanky post that has been on the radar for several years. Martin has gotten stronger in his upper body since he broke on the scene as a sophomore at Curie. He is a presence in the lane with his defense and rebounding. Martin does a nice job of protecting the rim on the defensive end swatting shots from guards coming from the weak side and can defend straight up against opposing posts. Solid rebounder that high points them. Offensively is still a bit raw, but shows flashes. Finishes well on dump off passes and in transition.
He is the #27 overall prospect in the state of Illinois and #5 power forward. He immediately becomes one of the top uncommitted post prospects remaining in the state of Illinois.
Treavon’s brother Tyree Martin (#28 in 2018 rankings) who also committed to Tennessee State in January told us this on the status of his commitment.
“As of right now I’m still committed to Tennessee State and my brother has opened his recruitment back up.”
