Martinez is a face up forward with a lot skill but there are a few areas of his game he needs to strengthen. Jose was in the middle of a workout during this interview showing that although he’s made a college decision that it’s just a step towards to where he wants to go.

“I need to get stronger but that’s something i’m working with coach Kehoe, coach Campbell and coach Sam at Cheshire Academy,” said Martinez. “I’m also trying to improve my handle cause with that i will combine my outside-inside game much better and take advantage of slower big men.”
