QB Khristian Martin eyeing regional schools for official visits

Highland Springs (VA) three-star quarterback Khristian Martin is ready to take the next step in his recruitment with a trio of official visits set next month.

Martin, a 6-foot-3, 211-pound dual-threat quarterback, will begin his official visit tour to Virginia the weekend of June 9. Martin will then head to Virginia Tech beginning June 20 followed by Maryland beginning June 23.

“They stayed thorough through my recruiting. A lot of the schools I got the offer [from] very early on and the coaching staffs have been there so like Virginia, Virginia Tech,” Martin told IBG. “I’ve had Maryland since my freshman year, that summer, so I’ve known coach [Mike] Locksley for a while and the other two coaches offered me as soon as they got there.”

There’s a fourth school that enters the summer as a possibility for an official visit: Texas A&M.

“We’re just figuring out dates,” Martin added.

Both Virginia and Virginia Tech have put the full-court press on Martin over the last year and those are two programs he’s plenty familiar with.

“The in-state schools, obviously I’ve visited them a bunch of times. I’ve got teammates at Virginia and Virginia Tech, teammates committed to UVA, so I’m pretty familiar with both schools. Both have recruited me pretty hard, so both have been good.”

Maryland’s staff changes haven’t deterred Martin’s interest after making his way to College Park for a spring practice, getting a chance to sit in position meetings before watching the team in action. While wide receiver coach Gunter Brewer and former assistant Dan Enos laid the groundwork, Martin’s relationship with new offensive coordinator Josh Gattis has helped maintain high interest in Maryland. “I’ve gotten to know coach [Josh] Gattis. He came to the school, spoke to him briefly. Coach Gattis and coach [Latrell] Scott, both of them, I had a relationship with coach Scott before the fact so it was good to see him always. Coach Gattis, I’m learning [about] him and his style. Learning how he coaches. He’s done a great job recruiting me. He’s very thorough.”

Martin was careful to note that the four schools aren’t a top four just yet, but they’re the four that have separated themselves heading into crunch time.

“Still very open, still thinking, evaluating everything and trying to find the best fit for me.”

Martin is rated a three-star prospect and an 84 overall by On3, sitting as the 37th-best prospect in Virginia.
