Michigan made an offer to another 2022 quarterback from the state of California. First it was three-star QB Nate Johnson, and now it’s four-star QB Justyn Martin.
Michigan’s interest in the Inglewood QB has heightened in recent weeks, and Michigan has stayed in contact with Martin since interest was expressed a couple weeks ago. Martin told Maize n Brew he was “initially surprised by the interest” and said “the staff was very welcoming”.
“I talked to Coach (Director of Player Personnel) Morgan about his connection to LA and how he can relate to California. Coach Weiss and I mostly talked about where my head is at in all of this and our perspectives on certain situations,” Martin told MnB. “Coach Morgan definitely had some Cali in him and I could tell immediately that Coach Weiss was intelligent just by the way he speaks.”
When MnB caught up with Martin earlier this week he said that both Morgan and Weiss have been in contact with him recently — and the offer extended to Martin is a reflection of that evolving relationship between he and Michigan.
Martin is committed to the University of California but is keeping his options open. “I am committed to Cal, I love the program, I love the relationships I’ve built with the staff, and I love the chance that they have taken on me. Due to the pandemic effecting us, my supporting staff behind me has told me that I should keep my options open.”
Martin said that he is in no rush to make a final decision. “I’m enjoying the process and taking everything day by day,” Martin said.
The 6-foot-4, 210 pound quarterback is ranked as the No. 269 prospect in the 2022 class, No. 20 overall QB, and No. 20 player in California.
