Martin, a 6-foot-6 small forward from Indianapolis, averaged 11.7 points and 5.2 rebounds this past season for Xavier. He had a terrific second half to the season, scoring in double figures in 16 of his final 21 games.
Xavier has already lost sophomore guard Semaj Christon to the NBA draft, and Mack has been targeted for the vacant head coach job at California.
