PF Jordan Martin commits to Salukis

Southern Illinois landed a verbal commitment from power forward Jordan Martin (Hazelwood, Mo./Central) on Tuesday night, according to The Southern.

"SIU offered his sophomore year, with [coach] Chris Lowery," Martin's high school coach, Josh Martin, told the paper. "He has liked SIU for a while and it's been a school that's stuck with him, and ultimately won out, so he's excited about his opportunity."

Martin will join PG K.C. Goodwin (Memphis, Tenn./Melrose), SF Sean O'Brien (Mundelein, Ill./Mundelein) and SG Hunter Gibson (Bethany, Okla./Three Rivers C.C.) in Carbondale next season.
