Former Arizona State point guard Remy Martin announced his commitment to the Kansas Jayhawks. Martin announcing his transfer to Kansas is enormous for this Kansas Jayhawks team and coaching staff. Remy gives the Jayhawks a good change of pace guard that can score from different spots on the court. But there is no clear indication he will suit up in a Kansas uniform as he still plans to go through the draft process. However, I expect him to play next year due to his low draft stock.
Martin spent four years at Arizona State. He put up respectable averages and earned two first-team and one second-team Pac-12 selections during those four years. He averaged 14.9 points, 3.9 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.3 steals per game for his career as a Sun Devil. His shooting splits aren’t terrible. Martin shot 42.8% from the field and 33.3% from three-point range.
With players such as Bryce Thompson, Latrell Jossell, Tyon-Grant Foster, and several others entering the transfer portal, it was important for Kansas to land Martin. He will provide an immediate impact on offense and defense. Martin being on the team gives the Jayhawks a guard who can create separation and get their own shot while creating for others.
Remy Martin is a game-changer for Kansas. The 2021-22 Kansas Jayhawks team will be loaded. Remy Martin and Drake transfer Joseph Yesefu in the backcourt and David McCormack and Christian Braun in the frontcourt. Not to mention Jalen Wilson and Ochai Agbaji, who both I assume will return to Kansas due to their draft stock being low. With that roster, the Kansas Jayhawks will be a top 10 preseason team.
