Nick Martin Takes In Michigan Again

The Hoosier State lineman once again made a trek to Ann Arbor to unofficially visit the Wolverines, to see and experience some things that he didn't quite get to the first time around. GoBlueWolverine caught up with him to gauge his feelings on his visit and where the Maize and Blue stand.

On Sunday and Monday, Nick Martin, the 6'5" 260 pound offensive lineman from Bishop Chatard (IN), made his way to Michigan for the second time this summer to get a feel for the Wolverines and where they stand for him.

"It was good," Martin told GoBlueWolverine of the visit. "I got there and talked to Coach Rod, Coach Frey and my recruiting coach, Coach Tall. They took me around and I got to hang out in the dorms with some players. Then when I woke up I wandered down to check them out and got to see the strength coach, and I was really impressed."

Martin had previously spoken of taking in some time to meet some of the players and gauge their personalities and how they would mesh with his on a one on one basis. This trip provided him the chance to do just that.

"I got to hang out with Jordan Paskorz, Jake Ryan, Josh Furman and Kenny Wilkins. It was good. It was just people I would normally hang out with."

The overall trip was a positive experience for Martin as the Wolverines remain on his list as he starts to get ready to trim some of the fat off of his list.

"They're still on my list -- and that's a positive. I'm starting to narrow it down a bit. I do know some of the schools that will make it, but maybe I can share them at another time. I still have to talk to some of the other coaches."

Talking to the coaches is something he got to do plenty of while he was in Ann Arbor, taking in quite some time with the Michigan men in charge.

"They just expressed that they want me and that I was a good fit. I felt really comfortable with them. It was easy to talk to them -- and that's another positive."

The nation's no. 35 rated offensive tackle will continue to narrow down his list as he hopes to have his decision in before the summer is complete.

"I'm hoping to make my choice before my senior season. Hopefully I'll only have to take one official visit."
