Sanford (Fla.) Seminole wide receiver Ray Martin spoke with a Big East program earlier this week.
"I talked to Coach (Lonnie) Galloway (from West Virginia)," Martin said. "It was just a normal conversation, nothing too serious."
The Mountaineers have offered the 6-foot, 170-pound wideout and shared a few of the reasons why they are interested in his services during their recent phone conversation.

"He said they liked my film a lot," Martin said. "He said they liked my speed. He asked me if I could play defense, I said I was willing."
For Martin, he likes the football program in Morgantown and the opportunity it presents.
"I believe I can contribute there," Martin said. "I think I can fit into their offense. I watched a couple of their games and they are a very high-powered offense. They are a good team that I wouldn't mind being a part of."
In addition to West Virginia, Martin said he has heard from Central Florida, East Carolina, Kansas State, Miami, South Carolina, and South Florida. He plans to visit South Florida on March 5th for a Junior Day event.
He is in no rush to make any decisions and will just allow his recruiting to play out over the next several months. If everything turns out right, he hopes to be within a reasonable driving distance to home for his collegiate career.
"I just want to get the feel of more schools and see what they have to offer," Martin said. "I just want to find a place that feels like home and a place where I can contribute. There is a lot that goes into it. I do want to be close to home, I wouldn't mind going out-of-state if the opportunity presents itself, but I'd rather be home."
As a junior, Martin recorded 41 receptions for 489 yards and five touchdowns.
