As we mentioned on the Varsity Letters blog recently, Walsh Jesuit senior kicker Ross Martin has verbally committed to play at Duke.
Walsh coach Gerry Rardin said Martin committed to Duke on the way home from Florida.
“I think it is great because Duke has always been his ‘dream’ school because of the academic and athletic combo,” Rardin said this week.
Rardin said Martin “felt at home when he first stepped on Duke’s campus.”
Martin was 34 of 34 in extra points last season and 8 of 15 in field goals (long was 45). Rardin said Martin had 75 percent touchbacks on kickoffs.
