K-State Adds Irving to Basketball Squad.

Martavious Irving, the 6'2, 195 lb shooting guard out of Boyd Anderson High School in Fort Lauderdale, FL., has committed to play basketball for Kansas State University this Fall. A starter in all 28 games during his senior campaign in high school, Irving averaged 15 points, 7 boards and 2 cookies per game in 2008-09. He was a unanimous selection to the Class 6A-5A-4A All-Broward first team by both the Miami Herald and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. This kid is physical and strong as a guard, and he has no problem making that a know fact. Irving is a streaky shooter from behind the arc at best but when his feet are set, he can make you pay. He uses his body well and absorbs contact to knock weaker players off the ball as he goes to the rack to complete "and one" situations. Also, Irving makes his coaches happy by playing with good energy and passion on both ends of the floor. He has an excellent combination of athleticism and strength at the guard position and will be a great fit for the Wildcats style of play this upcoming season.
