Michael Martens will graduate in 2008 with the rest of his classmates at St. Mary's College, however…
Fuller Out, Martens In?
Martens hasn't received any offers to date, but he is getting interest from some of the top programs in the nation including LSU, BYU, Florida State, Notre Dame and Texas.
"I've talked to the head coach over at LSU. I've also talked to BYU," Martens said. "I just got a letter recently from Florida State. Notre Dame would be another school that I am interested in."
Martens grew up liking Notre Dame and Michigan, but the increased interest has really opened up his mind as far as recruiting goes.
"Growing up, I always liked Michigan and Notre Dame, but receiving a letter from a school like Texas really meant a lot to me," Martens said.
Distance isn't really a factor for Martens. He is looking for a school that can enhance his skills and get him to the next level.
"I've been thinking about that a lot," Martens replied when asked what he was looking for in a school. "It doesn't really bother me where the place is. I really want to go to a school that can develop my talent and hopefully allow me to play at the next level, whether it be the NFL or the CFL. I would also like to get some early playing time and just be competitive for a spot."
Martens plays wide receiver, cornerback and safety for St. Mary's College and also is an excellent kick and punt return specialist. He played in five games as a junior and caught nine passes for 275 yards and four touchdowns, averaging a gaudy 30.5 yards per catch with a long of 60 yards. On special teams, he returned four punts for touchdown with a long of 76 yards, had a long kickoff return of 90 yards and broke 200 all-purpose yards in one of the five games he played in.
The St. Mary's College athlete reports a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash, 4.07 in the short shuttle, 6.82 in the three-cone drill and has a 37-inch vertical leap.
In the classroom, he holds a 4.0 GPA and is awaiting his SAT results.
