Using his Vine account (which is like YouTube but just for Twitter and of even worse video quality) Jerron Martin, a 6'1" point guard out of Maryland, committed to play basketball for our Ole Miss Rebels as a part of the 2013 class. Ole Miss was his only major college offer, with his other offer of note reportedly from Loyola of Maryland. Looking at his highlight tape, he's flashy and skilled as a ball handler, but outside of that it's tough to gather anything of his basketball smarts or even his shooting ability. Still, his athleticism is impressive, something which is a bit of a recurring theme in Andy Kennedy's recruiting - especially of more under-the-radar type talents.
He will join center Dwight Coleby, wing Janari Joesaar, and forward Sebastian Saiz as a part of the 2013 class. He is likely to split time with Derek Millinghaus as a reserve guard off of the bench behind Jarvis Summers early on.
Welcome to Ole Miss, Jerron. Hotty Toddy.
