    2014 3-star small forward Kelan Martin looks terrific so far in the Kentucky state championship game. Smoking mid-range jumpers

    Did I tweet about Kelan Martin earlier? If not i should have. Power wing was outstanding for Indiana Elite

    -------------------------

    Martin is a 2014 SF. 6'5 and 185 lbs. I saw him at IndyBall last weekend. He's pretty good. I think if he worked on his body some, he could be a much better athlete. He's a skilled player out of Louisville Ballard. Could be a good backup plan if we don't get Trevon Bluiett. Martin is rated a 3 Star currently, but if he contines to excel with Indiana Elite that may change. We have done well lately recruiting Kentucky.

    Another SF type that could be offered is Kelan Martin. ButlerWay and I have talked about him some. He is playing with Indiana Elite 2014 and is a pretty good player. Kind of an old school game. ButlerWay doesn't think he will be able to defend the perimeter at the college level though. He isn't the greatest athlete, but he is a very effective player. Can shoot the 3. Plays for Louisville Ballard. Probably a 3 star.

    I think for Martin to be successful he will have to play PF on defense and a SF role on offense. He could be a nice player if he is used right. He would most certainly create some matchup problems if other PFs had to defend him. If Butler had more spots available I think he would he could be a nice weapon, but I wouldn't take him over players like Bluiett or Mitchell.

    You are correct, he is a 3 star. I see Mitchell as more of a combo guard than someone like Dunham or Blueitt that is or will be capable of playing the 3, especially in the Big East, although his offer list isn't unbeatable.

    Kelan Martin will be attending Butlers elite camp. I can't remember if I posted this or not, but I was told a while ago Ryan Welage will be there as well.

    Here is a video interview from the Courier Journal where Martin lists new Spring interest from Butler/Xavier/Creighton/Tenn/Providence/Saint Louis and Oklahoma. Sounds like numerous schools want to evaluate him more in the July Live period before offering.

    Some of that video above has Kelan Martin going up against #24 of Johnson central. That's Shane Hall. Ballard beat JC in the Sweet Sixteen down in the Ky state tourney.

    I wouldn't be at all against taking BOTH Bluiett and Martin if the opportunity presented itself. I think Martin can and will be a very good college basketball player. I think right now he is playing at too high of a weight. My guess is he is around 235. If he dropped down to 210 to 215, he would be a much better player for the college SF position.

    To be honest, I don't know a ton about Martin. But, if we're taking two wings, I would much prefer it to be Macura and Bluiett. That's a dynamite combo.

    Martin is very good. Strong with alot of skills. Smart player too. Sees the game well and has a motor and really likes to win. He and Trevon were matched up against each other last night. Kind of a stalemate IMO. Still a chance we don't get Trevon. Indiana is whiffing on some of its 2014 class, so they could come on strong. I like Macura also. He's much different wing than either Bluiett or Martin IMO. From Macura's videos his handle is really good. I asked in another thread if he could possibly play some lead guard on offense, defensively probably not but his ball skills, driving ability looks really good.
