Overtime continued its torrent run of signing elite high school prospects this week, snagging elite 2022 wing Jaylen Martin to its newly formed pro league, Overtime Elite (OTE).
Martin opted for OTE over Florida, Georgia, Georgetown, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, Texas Tech and Ole Miss.
Martin averaged 8.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and two assists this summer with NightRydas (Fla.) in the Nike EYBL.
The 6-foot-6 athlete, who hails from Florida State University School (Tallahassee, Fla.), held a 4.2 GPA last year, and his hoops IQ is equally impressive as a playmaker and an effective two-way wing, who can guard multiple positions on the floor.
“Jaylen is a dynamic wing that has a packaged creativity, athleticism and a crafty offensive feel,” said Brandon Williams, Head of OTE Basketball Operations. “He is embracing the challenge of competing with and against elite peers day in and day out and that’s what we’re about at OTE.“
Earlier this week, OTE announced the signings of Kok Yat, Malik Bowman, Dominick Barlow and Bryson Warren.
That group will join fellow elite players like Jalen Lewis, Bryce Griggs, Amen and Ausar Thompson Matt Bewley and Ryan Bewley and Jai Smith.

OTE’s new league will commence in September.
