On your visit to Rutgers

"It was a great trip. Soon as I took off, the carpet was out for us. I got a limo trip to a private jet. I have rode on private jets but this is the biggest one I ever rode on. When I got off the cold air hit, but it wasn't that bad. The coaches showed me a real good time I really enjoyed it."

Who did you hang with

" Bill Beckford from Glades Central. I got along with all the players real well. There are so many Florida guys, it's like everyone's from Broward."

What is your impression of Rutgers now

" My impression is really good. My rating of Rutgers went way up. Academics, they are right on point. They explained it real well."

Could you commit to Rutgers?

"There's a chance I could commit. Right now I have Wake Forest, NC State as being right up there with Rutgers. I went to NC State already, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Michigan State. I have no more visits I will probably make a decision the end of this week or sometime next week."


Martin is an outside linebacker prospect. He is a big hitter and very aggressive. Martin is the kind of player who's motor is always running.

"I play defensive end also, I can also play safety. I ended up with 84 tackles, 13 for loss, 22.5 sacks, 5 fumble recoveries, 3 forced fumbles, 8 tipped balls, 37 QB hurries."
