Where’s Gina? Martin’s On Board!

July 21, 2008

I put my foot in my mouth… and got some results!

Notre Dame’s lack of commitments from offensive tackles was making me a little nervous especially since 4 of the 8 offered prospects had committed elsewhere.

I can breathe a little easier. Zach Martin from Bishop Chatard High in Indianapolis committed to the Fighting Irish today. The 6′ 5″ 270 lbs. 4 star ( lineman is the 13th verbal commitment for Notre Dame’s incoming class of 2009.

The Irish are in desperate need for tackles to ensure the future depth at the position. Zach is a very tough and aggressive blocker, but as with a lot of young prospects, he will need to work very hard on improving his pass blocking skills.

Martin chose the Irish over Michigan, Iowa, and Kentucky to name a few of the offers. The icing on the cake is that ND locked down a highly rated player from the state of Indiana. Indiana is no recruiting hotbed when it comes to football talent, but it does offer very good prospects every year that can qualify academically for Notre Dame. The Irish must continue to keep their in-state talent in their state.

Welcome To ND Zach!!!
