Chris Martin resurfaces with Kansas

12/16/2012

Three-star City College of San Francisco defensive end Chris Martin is once again set to play at the FBS level, this time for Charlie Weis' Jayhawks, according to multiple reports.

Martin officially visited Kansas this weekend. He made another official to Washington State on Nov. 30th. Kansas State, Maryland, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Washington either offered or recruited the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder during this cycle.

ESPN wrote in his scouting evaluation after viewing junior college film, "Martin is a potential situational pass rusher at the BCS level who has a high motor with very good effort in pursuit."

Martin originally burst onto the recruiting scene as one of the country's most coveted prospects in the Class of 2010. He made headlines committing on Notre Dame a year ahead of time on national signing day 2009, when Charlie Weis was leading the Irish.

Weis was fired that November and Martin ended up signing with Cal. Martin later transferred to Florida but ultimately left the Gators in June 2011.

Martin is the 23rd verbal for Kansas in a class that has focused on securing junior college players.
