ESPN Player Evaluations

WCP Spring-May 11: Good frame, wide shoulders. Has real ball skill, can attack the lane off the bounce. More driver/penetrator than shooter. Can hit the open jumper, not great consistency. (Clay)

Boo Williams - April '11: There aren't many more tantillizing prospects in this class. Martin has a college-ready body -- long and strong -- and a smooth athleticism that projects sky high. She also is exceptionally skilled and savvy. What she may not be, however, is a centerpiece of any program's signing class. She's more an excellent No. 2, a player who will make the star shine brighter, and the team better, just not one will carry the whole program on her shoulders. And that's OK. Martin still is a marvelous player who uses body and misdirection off the dribble to attack the rim, can throw one-handed touch passes off the bounce and is starting to uncork a reliable mid-range game. She also is well-drilled on helpside defensive mechanics, a rarity on this level. (Nelson)

End of the Trail-July 10: Among fans, Martin may be the best-kept secret in the West. Think phenomenal athlete/skill set meets silky smooth nerves, and you start to get an idea of this kid's game. Martin can flat out score. She has a quick release and a pure stroke with the accuracy of a true marksman. She has deep range and feels comfortable looking for the three. The 6-1 standout has the uncanny ability to catch and always keep the ball in the shot pocket, making her a constant threat to pull the quick trigger. Her strong upper body and dominant athleticism allow her to elevate or create shot opportunities from the perimeter, even when being closely guarded. As her Utah Flight team progressed at the EOT, Martin found ways to put points on the board from both behind the arc or off of a low block move. The most improved aspect of Martin's game was her composure under pressure. She has great timing, and her added composure allowed her to make critical plays down the stretch. As Martin continues to mature and add a complementing mid-range game to the package, she will continue to move up in the rankings. (Howe)

Boo Williams-April 10: Utah is another one of those states that doesn't get a lot of buzz from the national recruiting scene, but Martin may be the exception to the rule in the 2012 class. In pool play she got a chance to measure herself against competition which was just as athletic as she is and, in some cases, like the Utah Flight's game against Boo Williams, she was surrounded by length and quickness at every position. Though she was a victim on a few occasions to the Elizabeth Williams block party, she also found that she could score against that level of player as well. If she approaches every contest with the same attacking mentality she could be a dominant offensive weapon this summer and with a young team in tow, she needs to emerge as a leader. (Hansen)
