We spoke to former J.L. Mann High and Tennessee commit Pat Martin about where things stand currently…
Martin talks move to Highland and recruiting
"I had planned to go there, but because two of my credits won't transfer, I came here to Highland to play one more season and I'll be able to sign with a school in December," Martin told JCFootball.com.
Martin is already in Kansas and preparing for a big season for the Scotties.
"I like the staff here and I think we're going to do some big things," Martin said. "I'll play safety and I can play both free or strong safety, but I'm probably a better fit in the box just because I'm good against the run and I like to be physical."
On the recruiting front, Martin still has an offer from the Tar Heels and also has been hearing from Illinois.
"(North Carolina) still wants me and they like me," Martin said. "Illinois has also been talking to me a lot too.
"I'm open to everyone and I'm going to sign in December, so I am hopeful that getting my name out there let's people know I'm still available."
Martin will have two years to play two following the 2013 football season.
