An in-home visit from Panthers defensive ends coach Charlie Partridge sealed the deal.
"Coach Partridge from Pitt came down here. It went great, my parent's really like him. He came prepared and had a very good presentation." The Panthers are trying to upgrade their defensive line which was a weak spot for them this season. Dave Wannstedt has already received commitments from defensive tackles Jason Pinkston, John Malecki, and Scott Corson.
As a junior, he had 69 tackles, six forced fumbles, three sacks, and one fumble recovery (returned 15 yards for a TD). Martin was chosen to the pre-season Super 11 team in Broward County.
