And an update on Morgan Park’s Isiah Martin…

Pickens, a 6-7 senior, gave an oral commitment to Jimmy Collins and UIC on Friday.

According to Morgan Park coach Paris Parham, Isiah Martin is down to Boston University and Indiana State. The Sycamores have made a late push for the 6-9 center. Parham said Martin will make his decision in the next couple of weeks.

Also, Parham said Illinois State star Osiris Eldridge, who he coach at Phillips, is a lock to stay in Bloomington.
