CuseNation's Mike McAllister interviewed the First Team All-New York tight end in February of last year on his interest in schools: 

“BC is probably my top school, to be honest," Marten said. "I got offered by them back in January of 2014. I was a sophomore at the time. (Head) coach (Steve) Addazio saw my film and I guess he liked it. He offered me on the spot. I’ve been to B.C. twice. I went to a camp there back in June. I really liked the program and the facilities. I really like B.C. I went back there in October to watch the Clemson game with my father. I just had a great time there. I loved the whole atmosphere. There was just not one thing I didn’t like about it.”

The Mass.-native was the starting center for Marshfield, being named to the 2015 USA Today All-USA Mass. team as well as receiving ESPN Boston All-State accolades.

Satchel Ziffer - P - Old Dominion

With the departure of senior punter Mike Knoll, the Eagles no longer have a reliable option to boot the ball away on fourth down. Enter the graduate transfer from Old Dominion, who aberaged 40 yards per punt while playing for the Monarchs.

Jimmy Lowery - OT - Eastern Illinois

The 6'4", 290-pound grad student started left tackle for the Panthers all of last season, who ranked fifth in the NCAA in sacks allowed last season. He will help add depth and experience to a somewhat shaky offensive line.
