There will be two Martins on the bench this season for the South Carolina basketball program.

Brandon Martin announced Monday night that he is transferring to USC to play for his father Frank, the head men’s basketball coach of the Gamecocks.

“New beginnings,” Martin posted on Twitter.

Brandon Martin, who attended Cardinal Newman High School in Columbia, played a post-graduate year at St. Thomas More School in Connecticut before playing at USC Upstate for two seasons. He didn’t play this season and entered the transfer portal on May 20.

Martin appeared in 24 games in 2019-20 for USC Upstate and had a career-high 23 points against VMI.
