Martin starting to hear from Michigan State

Burnsville (Minn.) junior quarterback visited by quarterbacks coach Brad Salem this week as the Spartans are in pursuit of a more mobile quarterback in the class of 2016.

Since kicking off his junior season at Burnsville (Minn.) High, Kamal Martin has seen his recruitment take off.

Schools like Minnesota, Iowa State, Missouri, Wyoming and more have been in touch.

“It’s been great,” he said. “I just try to stay humble and work as hard as I can academically and athletically.”

On Wednesday, another school got in touch as Michigan State quarterbacks coach Brad Salem made a visit to see Martin.

“He was a really nice guy and definitely knew what he was talking about,” Martin said. “He seemed like he knew a lot of things about the quarterback position and I really like it. He is a person I could see myself learning under.”

Salem left his card and a recruiting questionnaire with the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Martin.

”He said they are looking for more of an athletic quarterback in the 2016 class,” he said. “I could definitely see myself doing those things because I feel like I’m more of an athletic quarterback than anything.”

Martin has not taken a visit to Michigan State yet, but said he hopes to get out to East Lansing for either a junior day or a camp to get around the coaches and players. But from what he knows and has seen, he likes it.

“They seem like a program that knows how to win,” he said. “I love their tradition and how their players really work hard and they have a strong work ethic and how the coaches expect that from them.”
