Two-sport star Kaden Martin, son of Tee Martin, commits to ACC program
Two-sport star Kaden Martin out of Knoxville Catholic announced Wednesday that he has committed to Miami.
The son of former Volunteers quarterback and assistant coach Tee Martin, Kaden is a 4-star dual-threat quarterback on the 247Sports Composite. In his SI All-American commitment blog, Martin mentions also having offers from Tennessee, Oregon and Arizona State. He also noted that some football coaches appeared reluctant to recruit him, noting his MLB Draft stock.
Gaby Urrutia of InsideTheU reports that Martin “will focus primarily on baseball.” In his blog, Martin indicated he considered both sports when choosing Miami:
They’re doing a great job this year on baseball and football is doing a good job, too. Can’t wait to see what they have in the future. Can’t wait to add on to their program!
Under NCAA scholarship rules, if Martin plays both sports, his scholarship will be counted as a UM football scholarship.
