Martin recaps Notre Dame camp
Linebacker Jimmy Martin of Maitland (Fla.) Orangewood Christian made the trip with his father to Notre Dame for the Irish's Future Stars Camp. "Last night [Thursday], we ate dinner in the press box, and it was really fun," Martin said. "Yesterday, we also got tours of campus and of the football facilities. I loved campus and the coaches are great." Martin participated in camp on Friday in hopes of impressing the coaches and hopefully earning an offer. "Before camp, [Notre Dame assistant] Tony Alford said Notre Dame likes me and they are going to keep recruiting me," Martin said. "I spoke with him and [Notre Dame defensive coordinator] Coach (Bob) Diaco yesterday (Thursday) and they both wanted to see how I performed today." "I think I did alright," Martin added. "I pulled my groin last week at Indiana's camp, and that's why I cancelled trips to Michigan and Michigan State, so I could rest it for Notre Dame's camp." Martin said he noticed a couple fellow linebackers in the 2015 class that stood out during camp drills. "Linebackers Justin Hilliard and Garrett Williams looked good," Martin said. "Garrett and I are good friends because we play against each other in Florida, and I know linebacker is something new for him but he's willing to try it out." Martin said he spoke with Alford after camp, but he'll know more about where he stands with Notre Dame in a few days. "I spoke with Coach Alford after camp, and since he was with the running backs, he said the staff is having a meeting after camp and they are going to discuss who looked good, so I will probably get some feedback this week." Martin currently has offers from Cincinnati, Florida International, Eastern Illinois and Western Michigan.
