Malik Price-Martin is one the most versatile big men in the country and has made himself quite a name. Price-Martin was recently named to the U16 USA team and if you take a few minutes to see some of his game film, you will know why. Malik has been on UofL’s radar for a couple years now and has ties with the University. Malik plays high school basketball at Monsignor Pace High School in Miami, FL. If that name sounds familiar, that is the program that current Basketball Director of Operations Mark Lieberman came from. So what does Price-Martin feel about the UofL program and where is he in his recruitment process? He answers these questions and more in this interview.
