Pitino lands first recruit, PF Josh Martin


After being rejected too many times by higher profile recruits, Richard Pitino has finally landed his first recruit of the 2014 class.

His name is Josh Martin, a power forward from Seattle, Washington.

"I hope they (Minnesota fans) are [excited]," Martin told the Star Tribune. "I'm going to try to be the first big recruit in the Pitino era."

He's definitely big. The 6-foot-8, 215 pound Martin picked the Gophers over Florida State and Pittsburgh.

Martin also received scholarship offers from UCLA, Oklahoma State, Washington, Washington State, California and Gonzaga.
