Position: Wide Receiver/Special Teams
Keshawn Martin saw his stock soar during last season, as he became more of a threat on offense and a very special player in the Spartans return game on special teams. Much should be expected of Martin this season, and if he continues to improve upon his previous performances do not be surprised if he earns All-Big Ten honors as well as national honors.
Strengths: Weapon on offense and in return game.
Weakness: Play a bigger role in the offense.
Overall: Even if Keshawn Martin were just a kick returner, he would be ranked high in the Spartan 66 rankings. However, while Martin gets his props for his ability to do more than catch a football, he needs to continue taking his receiving game to another level for the Spartans offense to be special. Teaming with Mark Dell, B.J. Cunningham, and a host of top tight ends, Martin could provide the difference in big games.
Why He Made The List: There was no way Keshawn Martin was not going to make the Top 10 in this ranking. Placing him at the #3 spot shows how much people around the Spartans program feel he will be a major producer this fall. After increasing his totals the past two seasons, it is now time for Martin to become an elite player in the Big Ten and in college football as a whole.
