OL, ��ɉ�ɉ��, 270 pounds, 6’4″

Bishop Chatard High School

Indianapolis, Ind.

Offensive lineman Nick Martin, a two-way standout at Bishop Chatard High School in Indianapolis, originally committed to Kentucky, where his father played in the 1980s, but in due time instead opted to join his older brother, Irish sophomore Zack Martin, after Notre Dame offered him a scholarship in December. He committed to the Irish on Jan. 11.

Martin started on offense and defense for Bishop Chatard in his senior season and helped the Trojans win the Indiana Class 3A state championship. It was Bishop Chatard’s first state title since 2007.

Martin will likely compete for a vacant spot on Notre Dame’s offensive line following the departure of fifth-year guard Chris Stewart.
