Outfielder and ESPN Junior 300 QB Kaden Martin commits to play baseball at Miami

Kaden Martin, the son of former Tennessee quarterback and coach Tee Martin, committed to Miami to play baseball on Wednesday.

Martin is a 6-foot-1, 205-pound outfielder from Knoxville Catholic High School in Knoxville, Tennessee. He is projected as a prospect who could be selected in the 2021 MLB draft.

Being the son of a former quarterback and coach, Martin is also a member of the ESPN Junior 300 as a quarterback, ranked No. 296 overall. He had Power 5 offers to play football.

While he is a recruited football player and says he wants to try to play both sports at Miami, he is primarily committed to the Hurricanes as a baseball recruit and will count toward the baseball team's scholarship count. An NCAA rule states that if Martin plays a down of football for Miami, he would then count toward the football team's scholarship count.
