Kenyon Martin Jr. is the son of a former NBA star and No. 1 overall pick. However, he is making a name for himself on the hardwood as well.

Martin Jr. is a major Division I recruit in the class of 2019. He plays for the vaunted Sierra Canyon program in California, alongside five-star Cassius Stanley and point guard Scotty Pippen Jr.

Martin Jr. has no shortage of college options, but he's narrowed things down to a top eight, which he revealed Sunday night.

His finalists are Cincinnati, Florida State, Georgetown, Memphis, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon State and West Virginia.

Martin is the No. 14 player in the state of California and the 32nd-rated power forward in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Martin Jr's most recent offers are from Memphis and Oregon State. His father suited up for Cincinnati, so we'll see if he wants to follow in his footsteps.
