Notre Dame Picks Up Another Transfer
According to Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com, former Purdue forward Scott Martin has announced that he is transferring to Notre Dame. "I went to the NCAA tournament this year and enjoyed it," Martin said. "I really want to get back and I feel as though Notre Dame gives me the best chance to do that." The 6-7 freshman said Fighting Irish head coach Mike Brey was a major factor in his decision. "Notre Dame is a great school and Coach Brey and his staff are terrific," Martin said. "He lets players play and lets them do what they're good at." Martin, who is the second player to transfer to Notre Dame this offseason (former Mississippi State guard Ben Hansbrough joined the Irish last month), averaged 8.5 points and 3.8 rebounds per game last season.
