Martin Talks Cal at USAAAB Practice

Chris Martin

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Cal has four verbal commits playing in the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. But none are more heralded as five-star Bay Area native Chris Martin. Scout.com caught up with him on Monday to talk about the game and why he decommitted from Notre Dame to become a Golden Bear...

Chris Martin (6-5, 230) caused a stir recently when he decommitted from Notre Dame to go to California, but Martin really stuck to his guns. Martin said he would go to Notre Dame as long as Charlie Weis was there. Weis left and so did Martin.

Aurora (Col.)Grandview five-star defensive end Chris Martin will be the first to tell you that he is a outside linebacker. Everyone considers him a defensive end, due to his size, but when you see Martin play you realize he really is an outside linebacker.

Scout.com caught up with Martin on Monday to discuss his abilities as a linebacker and to get his take on what happened with himself and Notre Dame.
