With several interesting subplots along the way, it was a whirlwind recruitment for defensive lineman Chris Martin (Aurora, Colo./Grandview). In the end, Martin decided to return to his roots and will play his college ball close to home at Cal.

It was almost a year ago when Martin originally committed, announcing for Notre Dame on last year's national signing day. Martin seemed like a solid pledge but around midseason, he said there was a good chance he would take a few of his official visits.

As Notre Dame's football season began to sour, Martin's commitment looked softer and softer. He finally decommitted all together the last week of November. Martin took official visits to Florida and Oklahoma and word from those close to him was the Gators were the team to beat.
