Chris Martin (DT, Ft. Walton, FL) - One of Florida's top defensive line prospects received some good news today.

"I got an offer in the mail from LSU today," stated the 6' 5", 290 pound defensive tackle.

Where does this put the Bengals?

"I do not know. It was a life long dream of mine to play for LSU. I grew up wanting to play for LSU, so this raises a lot of questions. It opens up a lot of different things."

Does this put LSU out in front of the pack?

"No, I have to separate the fan in me from recruiting. You can not go to a school just because you grew up rooting for a school. They are up there with Florida, Auburn, and Alabama. Those are my top four schools, but I do not have a leader."

Which colleges have now offered Chris a scholarship?

"Purdue, Central Florida, Alabama and LSU. Ole Miss said they were going to offer me, but they never got anything in the mail to me."

Martin had 66 tackles, 8 sacks, 2 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles, and 2 recoveries as a junior at Choctawhatchee. He was named All-Florida for his play and was also named as a Jr All-American.

Chris will attend the All-American combine in Atlanta on July 4th.
