Quinton Martin, a four-star athlete from Belle Vernon (PA) High, committed to Penn State on Friday. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder chose Penn State over other schools, including Ohio State and Michigan.
Why Penn State was a better fit for MartinFor Martin, “their dedication to me” was the most memorable aspect of the relationship. Since the time their recruitment team began courting me, I have had nothing but positive experiences there.
How Martin gets along with the coaching staff and what his role will be in the teamI have the closest relationships with Coach Terry Smith and Coach Jajuan. They’ve been doing the most of the recruiting, and I’ll be playing running back for them; if my skills improve, maybe I’ll even get some time on defense too.
Martin and his loved ones discuss the meaning of “staying put.””It means everything to me,” Martin said. I’m going to do all in my ability to help Penn State win a national title and fulfill a lifelong ambition of playing for the university.
Overview of Scouting for Quinton MartinOn3’s Director of Scouting and Rankings, Charles Power, described him as a “versatile defensive back who lines up at both corner and safety but projects at the latter long-term.” In the spring before his junior year, he was measured at roughly 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. Has an above-average wing span for the position, measuring in at 6 feet, 4 inches.
Shows elite agility by routinely recording shuttle times of less than 4.2 seconds. As a two-high safety, he has impressive range and covering ability. Capable of playing either outside or inside the slot in man coverage.
He has a strong, physical game as a tackler and run defender who can bully opponents off the ball. He’s lightning quick and has plenty of room to grow in terms of his lower-body mobility. With a spring birthdate, you’re quite young for the season.
Martin is ranked as the No. 41 player in the recruitment industry by the On3 Industry Ranking, which is a weighted average of all four of the most important recruitment media companies.He is ranked as the third-best athlete and first-best player in the Keystone State.
He is presently worth $175,000. High school and college players’ predicted yearly worth is mostly determined by the On3 NIL valuation (PAV).
The NIL valuation does not keep tabs on the total worth of NIL transactions an athlete has made. Rather, it represents the present worth of an athlete.
