Wherever he goes, he is the center of attention. And no wonder. He is barely 18 years old and 6 feet 11. A basketball player. A prospect. And you can't teach height, you know. How else do you explain the swirl around an Australian teenager whose athletic potential prompted his mother to turn over guardianship and send him to the United States three years ago on a stack of promises.

Allowing Martin Iti to transfer to his fifth high school in a little more than two years would violate pledges made to the mother of the Villa Park junior that convinced her to drop her mission to have her son returned to Australia, an attorney said Wednesday. Ronald E. Lais, who has been waging a legal battle to allow Iti to play basketball at Villa Park, said he was surprised to learn the 6-foot-11 center had contacted Las Vegas Bishop Gorman Coach Bob Hubbard about a possible transfer.

Villa Park junior Martin Iti, whose hopes of returning to the basketball court this season were crushed last week when CIF Executive Director Jack Hayes upheld school Principal Fran Roney's one-year athletic suspension of the 6-foot-11 center, is attempting to transfer to Las Vegas Bishop Gorman, according to Gael Coach Bob Hubbard. Iti and his legal guardian, Courtney Rosegreen, attended Bishop Gorman's second-round game in the Holiday Prep Classic in Las Vegas Tuesday night.

Villa Park Principal Fran Roney on Monday denied a request to overturn her athletic suspension of boys' basketball player Martin Iti and suggested Iti's attorney file a hardship waiver with Southern Section Commissioner James Staunton. Ronald E. Lais, Iti's attorney, said he plans to fax the waiver to the section office today, and Staunton is expected to decide by early next week whether to restore Iti's eligibility. If Staunton rules against Iti, Lais can appeal the decision.

Villa Park High student Martin Iti, who has been ruled ineligible to play basketball for the Spartans, has ended his quest to free himself from his Australian mother's control. An attorney who appeared with Iti in Orange County Superior Court on Wednesday said he will not refile a denied petition for emancipation because Iti's mother has agreed to allow him to remain in Orange County and complete his education at Villa Park. Judge Stephen J.

Australian Martin Iti, engaged in a months-long struggle to remain in Orange County and play basketball at Villa Park High, has been declared athletically ineligible for one calendar year. The sanction is being imposed by Villa Park Principal Fran Roney because Iti, 17, provided Orange Unified School District officials with what "appears to be false information" regarding his academic status, according to a letter written by Frank Boehler, the district's director of child welfare and attendance.

Australian basketball player Martin Iti's petition for guardianship in Orange County Superior Court has been dismissed, as requested in a strategic move by an attorney representing Iti's local guardian. The dismissal clears the way for Iti's petition for emancipation, a second legal action that has similar goals to the petition for guardianship but requires a less demanding burden of proof, said the attorney, Ronald E. Lais.
