Malik Price-Martin gets over nerves quickly

By Jeff Borzello

INDIANAPOLIS – While Malik Price-Martin was looking forward to playing in front of coaches on the AAU circuit, it wasn’t easy for him when the ball first went up.

“I was nervous at first,” Price-Martin said.

After the top-25 2013 prospect settled down, though, he enjoyed it.

“It was a good experience,” he said.

Price-Martin, a 6-foot-8 forward from Monsignor Pace (Fla.) who runs with the Florida Rams, is extremely long and lean. He can knock down perimeter shots but is at his best when running the floor and finishing in transition. Price-Martin is also effective around the basket.

Not surprisingly, plenty of schools are in the mix for the Miami native.

“I knew Ohio State, Miami (Fla.), Texas and Louisville would be here watching me,” Price-Martin said.

Connecticut -- which had two coaches in attendance for Price-Martin’s first game -- and Syracuse are also coming at him strong.

Price-Martin has taken two trips: Ohio State and Miami (Fla.).
