The first of UConn’s seniors has formally announced their departure. Guard Tyrese Martin announced on Instagram Tuesday night that he would be departing the university and entering the NBA Draft.
Martin will be doing so after completing four years of collegiate basketball, forgoing the extra year afforded to student-athletes in the wake of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Originally recruited by Dan Hurley at Rhode Island, the Allentown, Pennsylvania native played his first two years in Kingston before joining the head coach at UConn. He played in 63 games for the Rams with 49 starts, adding six double-doubles.
