Alijah Martin, part of FAU's Final Four run, joining Florida



Florida Atlantic transfer Alijah Martin has committed to play at Florida next season, he told ESPN on Sunday.

"I wanted to stay in the South to play in the SEC, the strongest conference in America," Martin said. "I wanted a chance to be a primary ball handler and compete for a national title, at a program known for NBA talent and developing players for the next level."

Martin, a graduate transfer with one year of eligibility, said he committed to coach Todd Golden and the Gators over Michigan, Alabama, Arkansas, Ole Miss and USC.
