Martin has been a familiar face at West Virginia’s summer camps for each of the last four years, and his persistence paid off this past June after an outstanding performance earned him a scholarship offer. Kerry plays quarterback in high school, but projects to play as a cornerback in Tony Gibson’s 3-3-5 defense.

Martin chose to stay at home with West Virginia over an offers from Rutgers, Army, Cincinnati and Marshall.
