South Alabama top scorer Martino Brock to transfer to USF Bulls

USF Bulls men's basketball coach Stan Heath has picked up a late addition to his 2011-12 roster, as Martino Brock, a 6-foot-5 guard who led South Alabama in scoring as a sophomore, has committed to transfer to USF for his final two college seasons.

Brock, who averaged 14.2 points and did a bit of everything for the Jaguars, will sit out the upcoming season, then have two years with the Bulls. He is originally from Memphis, and chose the Bulls over Missouri, Auburn, Dayton and UAB. He'll give the Bulls another versatile wing in 2012 after guard/forward Hugh Robertson graduates -- he led South Alabama in steals (45) last season and in 3-pointers with 37, hitting 34 percent of his shots beyond the arc. He averaged 11.7 rebounds and 6.3 rebounds per game as a freshman.

Brock made an official visit to USF's campus this week and committed to accept a scholarship offer. He's expected to sign official paperwork with the Bulls next week, then should start classes when the Summer B semester begins on June 27.
