FORT COLLINS — Colorado State basketball has officially added Oral Roberts transfer Kris Martin, the team announced Monday night.
Martin, a 6-foot-6 guard from Frisco, Texas, visited Fort Collins this past weekend and tweeted out his commitment to the Rams on Sunday. He averaged 13.2 points on 40.8 percent shooting from the field with 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists this past season as a sophomore with the Golden Eagles.
As a Division I transfer, he will have to sit out the upcoming 2017-18 campaign and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
“Kris is a high character kid that comes from a great family,” coach Larry Eustachy said in a release. “He’s a big addition for us. He can play multiple positions and is a kid that is going to just continue to improve because his work ethic is second to none. Not only is he a great shooter, but he’s a guy that plays hard on both sides of the ball and is completely bought into our program. We are glad he is with us as he was drawing interest from many quality schools, including Iowa State, Seton Hall, Middle Tennessee State and UAB.”
Martin is the fifth DI transfer the Rams have brought in the past two seasons after adding Lorenzo Jenkins (Arkansas), Kevin Little (Maine), Robbie Berwick (Florida State) and Kevin Dorsey (Minnesota) last offseason — although Dorsey was a walk-on with the team this past season.
