Signing Day Capsule: Drake Martinez

Saddleback (Calif.) Community College linebacker brings a whole lot of speed to Michigan State and he should be showing that quickly this season.

Drake Martinez – Saddleback (Calif.) Community College Linebacker

Height, weight: 6-foot-2, 205 pounds

Commitment Date: January 27, 2015

Why Michigan State: ”(At MSU), I was already familiar with the coaches and things there. I thought it would be the best fit for me and the best spot for me to play.”

The Skinny

Martinez picked Michigan State on his second time being recruited by the Spartans. He should be eligible to play right away after spending his past year at the junior college level with three years left to play.

Martinez brings a lot of speed to the Michigan State defense and likely should be in the rotation at linebacker this season. His film shows a lot of hitting and versatility lining up at a lot of spots.
