Aiken, SC (Future150) -- Last week, yet another college prospect made a decision to reclassify. Different from most of his peers, Malik Price-Martin has decided to spend an extra year at prep school and become a member of the Class of 2014.
Different factors went into his decision, but in the end, the forward was focused on college preparation.
“Reclassifying gives me a chance to get stronger and work on my game,” he explained. “When I get to college, I want to go in and play. I feel like this move benefits me.”
With his long arms and athleticism, it is evident that Price-Martin does need to get in the weight-room and add some pounds to his thin frame. Nevertheless, he still makes things happen on the floor.
Throughout Peach State, the 6-foot-8 forward made an impact on both ends of the floor. He spent a lot of time at the free throw line and rejecting others’ shots.
“I feel like my strengths are attacking the basket, playing defense, and blocking shots.”
While Price-Martin does not have some of the schools on him that he has had in the past, he still is a nice prospect for a school; expect his list to continue to grow throughout the next year.
Memphis, USC, Florida, Florida State, Miami, and Kansas State are the main schools in the hunt for the forward. However, he is a long way away from a decision.
“I’m wide open right now. I’m open to any schools.”
