Default Cameron Martinez (OSU committ) 4* ath Muskegon, MI

Per several sources, He did not sign his early letter of intent. Quoted saying after former Ohio State DC left to become Head Coach at Boston College, Martinez "Have Reservations after Coach Hafley accepted the BC HC vacancy". Notre Dame was high on his list before he committed to OSU in the summer. So now the Irish Coaching Staff have expressed interest again, in light of this new development. He has taken 1 his 2 allotted Official visits, visited The Buckeyes right before his verbal commitment. Cameron wants to play offense (more of a running back that can spin the ball very good). Its interesting though as he has "Reservations" after Hafley (A Defensive Coordinator) departed. He is tabbed to play CB (nickel for now) or Safety. Seeing as how Notre Dame is committing to having a strong haul at DB for 2021, maybe some late magic by CBK and Staff can flip this dtnamic athlete to our program. Given the DB coach vacancy we have (Letting Todd Lyght Go), maybe move Martinez to slot or RB if need be. I can see this kid doing damage in kick returns as well. Please check out his YT highlights.

I know him well. He played at my kids high school before transferring. Iím friends with his uncle and he also dates my friendís daughter. Heís an incredibly nice and respectful kid. Certainly a good fit for ND personality-wise.

Heís super quick but pretty undersized. He dominates lower competition but struggles against good competition. Honestly, I was surprised he was a 4* and wonder how a college team will use him. Heís played QB his entire career but heís not a college QB (canít pass.) Maybe slot? But heís never had to catch a pass before. Maybe kick returns? Maybe CB?

Catholic family so I wouldnít be surprised if he chose ND.

Iíd trust the professionals over my opinion I was just surprised by his recruitment - always thought heíd be a 2/3* MAC or lower-end Power 5 guy.

Iíll continue to root for the kid no matter where he goes - even if itís OSU. Yuck! Heíll represent his school well as a young man for sure

I watched Julian Fleming this year. He's amazing but without the right angle its sometimes hard to tell, he was still amazing, but more amazing with the camera angles we are used too.

If Ohio State wanted him, they had a very good reasons and I will gladly welcome him to Notre Dame, Our Lady's University!

Welcome back AZ. Not sure we communicated much during your time here originally. ND is doing their due diligence with Martinez. Trying to get him on campus for the Junior Day on Feb 1st. They are also more comfortable offering him as a pure athlete now than they once were.

It sounds like he just needs to meet the new DC and if he's comfortable then he will sign with Ohio State. ND has been trying to get him to visit, but nothing is set thus far. A key signal will be whether he sets a visit to ND soon. If not it sounds like he will sign with OSU in Feb.

Ive been thoroughly watching this playout. He said he absolutely loved ND. I dont think he is as committed to OSU as much as some would like to speculate. Important to also note, Northwestern is also making a push for him. That says too me this kids wants to be on the field from day one, no redshirt. He is undersized, but so was Keivarae Russell (i know Russell is 2 inches taller). Something is telling me he is gonna be a flat out stud. Plus he has a great last name too lol. I believe OSU is wanting him at CB, but damn hes gonna be buried even if he standsout in that position. Would love to see him play nickel, special teams. He has good top end speed and elite acceleration, but he is a quick twitch back, which makes him absolutely lethal in kick/punt returns. If we can get him on campus for an OV, we should steal this one.

Also our New Secondary Coach will play a huge factor in this mix. As soon as we hire and he inks his name, his next move needs to be on a red eye to meet with Cam.

Dont fret my dude. Kid can ball, he is not used as a passer in his offense, Heavy RPO and Triple/Wing T option. Like i said in my reply, he is quick twitch and can create space between him and defenders very easily has good acceleration plus very good top end speed. He seems to want to play DB (perfect imho), also think he would do alot of damage in the return game.
