The Michigan coaching staff have been quite active of late in their recruitment of 2022 four-star quarterback Justyn Martin.

The Inglewood, California QB was offered by head coach Jim Harbaugh over the weekend.

Martin has been contacted recently by QBs coach Matt Weiss, Director of Player Personnel Courtney Morgan, Harbaugh, and others. After being sent film of Martin throwing at Steve Clarkson’s annual QB Retreat over the weekend, Michigan felt it was time to offer Martin.

They said that the loved them (the clips). Coach Harbaugh offered me and it was a great conversation. I was happy to start off my day that way,” Martin told Maize n Brew. “Great guy. It’s amazing to be associated with coach Harbaugh and for a guy with his historical background to offer me — it was awesome.”

Martin said he and Harbaugh spoke about how he’d fit in their scheme and that Martin visiting Ann Arbor was brought up, something Martin still needs to figure out.

“When he offered me it was just a great feeling. He didn’t sugar coat anything and it was definitely an achievement to be recognized by him,” Martin said.

Martin is a Cal commit but previously told Maize n Brew is keeping his options open due to the pandemic impacting his recruitment process. 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.

“There has never been a question about Martin’s potential and his ceiling is very high,” 247Sports Greg Biggins said on Saturday. “He looks good mechanically and has tightened his release. He has a smooth, easy delivery and the ball jumps out of his hand. He’s a plus athlete who made a lot of nice off-platform throws and if he can continue to improve in his ability to process the game and play with poise under duress, the sky’s the limit.”
