Sac State's frontcourt signee

"[Calvin] Martin leads the signing, inking with the NCAA Division I Hornets. Martin is one of two Owls to have appeared in every single contest over the last two seasons, posting career marks of 6.8 points per game and 6.7 rebounds a game. As a sophomore, Martin averaged 7.9 points, and was the team's leading rebounded at 8.4 boards a game, on his way to earning All-Western State Conference East Division Honorable Mention honors.

"After meeting with the team and the coaching staff at Sac State, I was able to see what their culture was about. From my time with the coaching staff and players, I could tell that they wanted me to be a part of their family," Martin said. "I know I will play a big role in helping them win the next two years, and I'm excited about what the future holds at Sac State."

Martin scored a career high 19 points in earlier this year an early December win over Orange Coast College, and ripped down a career high 18 rebounds in a win over Mendocino College in the middle of the same month. Ironically that rebounding performance came one game after he had set what was then a career high in rebounding with 17 rebounds in a victory at Los Angeles Pierce College. On the season Martin, was one of just two Owls to start all 31 games, and recorded five double-doubles on the year.

"Citrus has really prepared me for the next level. They gave me the tools that I need to continue to be successful these next two years and beyond," Martin said. "Everyone, from the coaching staff to the support staff, in the athletics department has played a big role in my development these last two years. I'm very thankful for Citrus College and the opportunities it has provided me."
