"It was amazing, I loved it," said the 6-1 292 Jared Martin. "I really didn't think I would like the desert that much, but it stuck to me. It was real nice there. Kind of like Florida with a lot less rain (smile). I liked the atmosphere of the team too. I got to hang out with my host Tranell Morant and some other players. He told me how it was coming to ASU from Florida and what it was like. I talked to a lot of the coaches, and got a tour of campus."
Martin admitted that he had a pre-convinced notion of Arizona State, and that that image did take a turn for the positive following his trip. "I was totally taken off-guard," he remarked. "The stadium, the locker room, the team…I really like Coach House the strength coach, and what he had to offer."
Despite the enjoyable weekend, the defensive tackle isn't close to a decision, and expects one not before the end of December. "I just have one more visit to take and I want to keep my options open," he explained. "I'm gonna visit Minnesota (on Dec. 2nd), and I'm undecided about taking a visit after that. If I do take another visit, it will be between Purdue, Rutgers and Northwestern."
