One of the top offensive tackles in the nation resides at Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei high school in four-star talent Frank Martin.
Looking to add to that growing list, Michigan is another school showing increased interest now that Jim Harbaugh and his staff are officially in Ann Arbor.
“I’ve been talking to Coach (Tim) Drevno ever since he was at USC,” Martin said. “I had a pretty good relationship with him.
“When he went to Michigan I hit him up again and he told me to give him a call a couple hours ago. We should talk tonight so we’ll see how that goes.”
Good news in the form of a scholarship offer could come out of that conversation as reported earlier by GoBlueWolverine’s Sam Webb.
Without officially having the offer in hand just yet, Martin is intrigued by what Michigan has to offer, more familiar with the Wolverines than most might believe.
“I’m very interested in finding out more,” Martin said. “Everyone wants to play at the big house, I mean who wouldn’t want to play in front of that many people? The big house is known worldwide.
“Especially now that they have Jim Harbaugh, they’re (a program) on the come up right now."
Looking to major in business finance, Martin will have his eyes open and focused when he hits campuses for more visits.
“I want to make sure they have my major, see the environment, see if the people out there are going to influence me positively or negatively,” Martin said. “I want to see how the coaches mesh with the team and see how the players are.”
