Given an extra year to play college basketball because of the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver

 ASU guard Remy Martin had made up his mind. He was going to spend the final season of his career playing for the Kansas Jayhawks, attempting to become the missing piece on a national title contender.

But as ASU’s most notable player of the past decade finalized his decision, he pondered his Sun Devils legacy.

“It would mean a lot to Remy – and he’ll never tell you this – I don’t think he’ll tell anybody, but he’s told me

 Remy’s father, Sam Martin, told Cronkite News. “It would mean a lot to Remy. He wants his jersey up there (in Tempe).”

“Do you still think that’s a possibility?” Martin asked his father as he closed one door and opened another in mid-May. Sam told his son, who sits second in ASU’s record book in assists, sixth in scoring and eighth in steals, that the time would come, he just had to be patient.

“Obviously, it won’t be today, it won’t be tomorrow but I do think it will happen for you. If anybody does it exactly how you just did it, I think it’s going to be hard for them to deny you. You’ve poured your heart and soul into ASU. I think you’ll still be rewarded for that.”
