Four-star DE Chris Martin commits to Kansas football

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE

Kansas has added an intriguing player in defensive end Chris Martin, who entered his college career prior to the 2010 season as the No. 18 overall recruit in the nation.

Junior college defensive end Chris Martin officially committed on Wednesday to play football for the Kansas Jayhawks, according to JayhawkSlant.com.

Martin, a four-star recruit out of City College of San Francisco, originally signed with the California Golden Bears out of high school before transferring to the Florida Gators in 2010. He ended up at Navarro College in Texas in 2011 after leaving Florida following an arrest, making Kansas his fifth stop in less than three years. That does not count the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, with whom Martin signed following his junior year.

That makes Martin, who registered 65 tackles, 12 1/2 tackles for a loss and 4 1/2 sacks in 2012, familiar with Weis, who went 1-11 in his first year at Kansas. Despite that record, Martin feels Weis knows what kind of players it takes to win, he told Austin Meek of the Topeka Capital-Journal:

"If you look at Notre Dame right now, who are they all winning with and in the national championship game with? Coach Weis' players."

Martin joins a KU recruiting class that is ranked No. 31 in the country, according to Rivals.com.
