PUTNAM — Putnam Science Academy scored another commitment this past week as Melik Martin from York, Penn., and a graduate of York Catholic High School committed to the Mustangs for the 2017-2018 season. 
Martin, who will come to PSA as a post graduate, is coming off a huge April live period. Martin who is fully qualified and a bright student was ready to go off to college, but after a big spring on the AAU circuit with the York Ballers the Division 1 schools began to call in droves.
 In May, Martin picked up his first Division 1 offer from Duquesne University in the Atlantic 10. As Martin, his family and AAU coach began to go through the process they decided it was best to spend another year in high school as a post graduate. This way Melik will be able to go through the full recruiting process throughout the summer and upcoming season with the Mustangs. 
The 6-foot, 6-inch lefty swingman will bring a lot to the table for the Mustangs as he has the ability to play an inside and outside game. Head Coach Tom Espinosa said, “Melik is a classic kid when it comes to prep school. He is a bit of a late bloomer and hasn’t had a ton of exposure to college coaches. This upcoming summer and season I expect Melik to gain a large following from colleges and be a big part of this years team.” 
Martin holds the Duquesne offer along with interest from Townson, Brown, and Robert Morris, to name a few.
