Carmel Christian junior Marten Maide has committed to Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.
Maide, a 6-foot-4 junior wing, will eventually join one of his Carmel Christian teammates at Liberty. Senior guard Josh Price, son of former Charlotte 49ers coach Mark Price, committed to Liberty earlier this season. The Flames have also gotten another Charlotte recruit: Charlotte Christian 6-9 senior center Blake Preston will play at the school next season.
Liberty is in the Big South conference with schools like Presbyterian, UNC-Asheville, Winthrop and Charleston Southern.
Maide, who hails from Estonia, a northern European country, is a starter for a 16-2 Carmel team ranked among the state’s top 10 private schools in several statewide polls. Carmel hosts Christ The King Friday on homecoming.
