Minnesota Football Recruiting: Kamal Martin Commits To Gophers

Minnesota welcomes a 3 star athlete from Burnsville to Dinkytown!


Name: Kamal Martin
Position: ATH
Hometown/School: Burnsville, MN (Burnsville HS)
Profile: 247Sports Profile // Scroll of the Sworn!
Rating: - 0.8519 Composite Score

How he fits:

Well, Kamal is an athlete and his position is a little up in the air. Here are some of the possibilities:

Kamal's frame and athleticism aligned with the H-back spot in Matt Limegrover's offense. While Limegrover is no longer calling the plays, Martin is still the sort of player who can attack the defense as a tight end. He has the potential to bulk up further while maintaining good spped for his size. This would allow him to get mismatchs on linebackers/safeties and exploit quick releases up the seem or crosses.

There is also a chance he could play linebacker. The defensive coaches have a fondness for length at outside linebacker to help block passing lanes, and Martin could have just enough athleticism to hang with slot WRs and tight ends at Sam.
