UW extends offer to Seattle Prep junior

Jabari Parker and the headliners bailed out on the Rose City Showcase last weekend, which allowed rising star Josh Martin, a junior next season at Seattle Prep, to steal the show.
I had a chance to watch Saturday’s action at Lewis & Clark College and the 6-7 forward was one of the top players in the tournament along with Friends of Hoop teammate Zach LaVine, the Bothell senior point guard with offers from UW and UCLA among others.
Jason McCleary at Left Coast Recruiting has been following Martin’s recruitment closely and reported in October 2011 that he received an offer from the Huskies. Martin is considering a few other schools including Gonzaga and Oregon State.
Martin is a high-energy player. He not only hustles on both ends of the floor and runs the court well for a big man, but he also displayed long-distance shooting range that extended beyond the three-point arc.
Here’s a video (below) of a handful of his dunks during the tourney produced by OregonLive.com.
