Bad news for all of you Vanderbilt basketball fans. Both of you.
Kenyon Martin Jr., the son of former NBA star Kenyon Martin, obviously, hence the Jr. at the end of his name, backed out of his commitment to Vandy this week, per Evan Daniels. Martin Jr. originally committed to Jerry Stackhouse and the ‘Dores a month ago, then signed his Letter of Intent to make it official, but has since decided he will pursue professional options overseas instead.
K-Mart leaves Vanderbilt without a Blue Light Special in its 2019 recruiting class. The 6-foot-6, 195-pound power forward was all set to join Scottie Pippen’s son and a handful of others in Stackhouse’s first recruiting haul, which ranks 12th in the SEC, prior to this news.
He has not signed a pro deal yet.
