The Cal Poly men’s basketball team is welcoming another high-major Division I transfer from the Pacific Northwest to campus.

Minnesota freshman forward Josh Martin — a top prospect who Mustangs head coach Joe Callero once recruited out of Bothell (Wash.) High — appears poised to join Cal Poly at the start of the winter quarter.

NCAA rules prohibit coaches from commenting on transfers until they enroll in classes, but Callero did confirm that the 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward was making an official visit this weekend.

On Friday, Martin’s Twitter bio indicated he was soon to be a Cal Poly Mustang, and he received a “welcome to the family” on the social media site from current current Cal Poly freshman guard Trevor John.

In the offseason, the Mustangs landed Gonzaga transfer Luke Meikle, a 6-9 sophomore forward who is redshirting this season.

The earliest Martin could attend classes is Monday. If he were to enroll at Cal Poly immediately, Martin would be eligible to play as a sophomore sometime around the middle of next December. He would miss the rest of the current season and the start of nonconference play next fall to comply with NCAA Division I transfer rules.

Coming out of Bothell’s class of 2014, Martin was assigned a three-star rating and a scout grade of 78 by ESPN.com, which ranked him as the fourth-best senior prospect in Washington and 34th at his position nationally.
