Jim Harbaugh got to see thousands of prospects during Michigan’s satellite tour this past summer and one of the recruits that caught the Wolverine coaching staff’s attention was San Bernardino (Calif.) Cajon 2018 defensive end Jeremiah Martin. It wasn’t much longer that Michigan would extend an offer out to the Golden State standout. However, communication has been at a minimum since then.
“(I’m) not really (hearing from them),” said Martin. It just same with some other offers like offered then don't really communicate. I mean mail that's about it.”
So, is the interest still there from the 6-foot-4, 224-pound Martin towards the Maize and Blue?
“I mean yeah (I’m still interested) and considering them, but Alabama is showing a lot of interest too,” said Martin.
One of the reasons his interest hasn’t faltered in Michigan is because of the prestigious education they have to offer.
“I like stuff they offer academic wise,” said Martin. “Yeah, (academics are big) and I'm more striving toward what future holds for schooling. I mean if the NFL falls into the picture that's a dream, but I'm going to go back to school.”
Martin maintains there are no favorites in his recruitment and open to everyone at the moment. Moving forward, he plans on visiting UCLA this Saturday and Alabama at the end of the month or beginning of next. He also hopes to also check out Ann Arbor and begin to establish a bond with Wolverine coaching staff too.
“Yeah, I'll visit Michigan and hopefully (contact picks up) that's what make players comfortable with staff and coaches,” said Martin. “Michigan is a great school and I’ll be visiting them, but just don't feel they are as interested in me as I am in them right now.”
