San Antonio The decision has been weighing on Daniel Martin for some time.
The four-star safety quarterback/hybrid player from Marietta High School was about to make his college decision several times over the fall but took advantage of the All-American Bowl stage to reveal he was headed for Vanderbilt.
Martin, the nation’s 28th safety pledge, told the Commodore regarding Oregon and Florida. The Peach State producer returned to Nashville the weekend before the early signing window. Clark Leah And his employees hired Martin longer and harder than the group.
“They really called me. Even the O-line coach (AJ plz) He calls me and sends me a text. Coach Lea is building a great, successful program and what they’re building there is amazing.”
“And they know what they want. They don’t bring in kids who want to move like most teams or players move from one team to another, and I love that. I love everything there.”
“I don’t want to be in a place I don’t want to or where they don’t treat me like family. They did and that played a huge role[in my recruitment].”
At 6ft 3,190lbs, Martin crosstrains in both safety and linebackers and in centerless football provide the opportunity to play in the penalty area and close to the line of scrimmage as well as undo coverage. He shone during the Camp Rivals series and again caught the eye with his performance in San Antonio. Martin has a huge wing and can disrupt passing lanes in coverage. He can also make plays on the sidelines to sideline and put the heat on the midfielder.
