Georgia Tech: "I have a good relationship with their coaches. It's close to home. My family could come see me play."
Alabama: "They are a big powerhouse program. If I went there I know I would be playing on TV every week."
Duke: "I like their academics. I know if I get a good education I can get a real good job if I do not make it to the NFL."
North Carolina: "I like how their safeties play. I really like the way Deunta Williams plays."
Virginia Tech: "I think they have a good tradition of DBs. They can get me ready to play DB in the NFL."
Martin attended a game in Atlanta earlier this season.
"I attended the Georgia Tech-UNC game," he said. "I was invited to the Alabama-LSU game and UNC-Miami game, but was not able to go. The visit to Georgia Tech was fun. I talked to the defensive coordinator [Dave Wommack]. He said he wants me to be a Yellow Jacket. He told me to keep my head on straight.
"The visit was my first time going to a game. The atmosphere was crazy. I couldn't hear myself think. The fans were really wild. They treat you like family there."
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound athlete recorded 85 tackles, two interceptions and a couple of forced fumbles during his junior season. He returned one interception for a touchdown.
"I feel like my size and closing speed are my biggest strengths," Martin said. "I have really good instincts. I try to intimidate players when they try to run a post route against me. I feel like I need to improve my coverage and range."
Martin will participate in track during the spring.
