“In this whole process, all I wanted was a program that believed in me as much as I believed in myself,” said Zane Martin in the commitment video that announced he had chosen to go to the University of New Mexico.
The Towson University standout visited New Mexico last weekend. At 1:30 am on June 29, Martin tweeted about a commitment video without giving out any details. On Friday July 6, he said on Twitter that he would announced his commitment before the weekend was over. It only took him a couple hours after that to post the video.
During the 2017-18 season at Towson, the 6’4″ guard averaged 19.8 points per game. This was a big improvement from the 5.5 points he averaged during the previous season.
“Never stop giving up on your dreams. Your life really can change in a year just always stay humble and motivated,” Martin tweeted on Friday night.
New Mexico had no openings in the roster a couple days ago, but Friday was a busy day. Junior college transfer Tajuan Agee signed a National Letter of Intent with the Lobos during the 2017 early signing period but never officially enrolled at UNM. On Friday it became known that he was out. Instead of joining the 505 team, Agee committed to Iona.
