"North Carolina was pretty good," he said. "I went to the spring game and it was a pretty mellow day. The coaches were focused on their players, but it was pretty nice. They didn't really talk about offering either. I did see their facilities though and really liked them."
Meanwhile, what did Martin think of Virginia?
"I went up there for practice yesterday and I liked it up there more than I thought I would," he stated. "I knew they had the No. 1 business school and that's what I'm interested in studying. It was pretty nice. I also liked the way they run their practice everything was intense.
"I think I was one of two or three recruits up there and I even talked to Coach Groh. It was nice talking to him, that's when they offered after practice. He sounds like a nice guy."
Martin plans to take another trip soon.
"I think I'm going to Duke on the 18th for their spring game and I may try to get to Virginia Tech's too."
While many schools have offered, a few including Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Louisville continue to show interest.
Does Martin like anybody?
"I don't really have any favorites, but I do like Duke, Virginia Tech and Virginia," he said. "I like Duke's coaching staff and they have a good education. I like the way Virginia's practice was run and they have the No. 1 business school which is what I'm interested in studying. As for Virginia Tech, they always win so if I go there I have a chance to win a championship."
