Seton Hall pursuing sit-out Towson transfer Zane Martin

Seton Hall is still going after point guard transfers, except this one will have to sit out next season due to transfer regulations.

Towson sophomore point guard Zane Martin (19.8 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 2.7 apg) took a big leap last season from 5.5 ppg as a freshman to nearly 20 per contest and 31 starts in his second year of college ball.

That remarkable improvement has prompted an agent-less dip into the NBA draft waters this spring as well as a transfer to greener pastures.

The Philly native is now down to Clemson, Gonzaga, Seton Hall, and New Mexico with two seasons left to play after next.

Martin visited Maryland earlier this month, will see Clemson this weekend, and plans to visit Gonzaga next weekend. 

At 6-foot-4, Martin is described as a physical combo guard (66-178 3pt, 37%) while KenPom has labeled him a point guard based on his statistics and style of play over the past two seasons.

Regardless, it’s clear that Martin is used to playing with the rock in his hands: last season, he ranked eighth nationally in percentage of his team’s shots taken (34.8%) and reached 30+ points on three occasions. 

Seton Hall still has one open scholarship for Martin and could boast a deep back court that also includes Anthony Nelson, Quincy McKnight, Myles Powell, and Myles Cale in 2019-20 should he come aboard.

It’s unclear if Martin will visit Seton Hall before he makes a decision in the coming weeks.
