Yes it is final, Scott Martin has chosen Notre Dame. The Purdue transfer was looking at Notre Dame, Butler, DePaul, and Valparaiso. I think he made the best choice. Martin will have 3 years of eligibility with the Irish after he sits out the required year. The 6-8 foot freshmen averaged 9 points per game and 4 rebounds, not bad at all for a freshmen off the bench.
Scott should help the Irish out a lot. His size is needed and having him, Harangody and Tyrone Nash down low will present a very athletic and intimidating post in two years. Martin was ranked 29 on the national list of recruits for last recruiting season. These two big-name recruits will certainly come in handy for the Irish down the road. Ben Hansbrough should be able to take the place of Kyle McAlarney with some hard work and Martin will certainly have a big impact on the block.
