Pitt First to Offer Belle Vernon Freshman Quinton Martin



Four years ago, Pat Narduzzi and Pitt were the first school to offer Gateway freshman Derrick Davis, who recently committed to LSU.

Although it did work out in that situation, Pitt is once again getting in early with another WPIAL freshman star.

Friday night, Pitt became the first program to offer Belle Vernon freshman athlete Quinton Martin (6-foot-3, 180 pounds) from Belle Vernon High School. Martin was a big reason for Belle Vernon’s 6-2 season and then reaching the WPIAL semifinals.

“Pitt sent me an underclassman questionnaire and I called the number that they gave me because i had some question about the campus and said that they were really glad I called,” Martin told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “Then one thing led to another and they offered me. I didn’t know how to take it in to be honest and I’m still amazed.”

”I would’ve never thought this day would come. It means everything to me that I received this offer and I’m very surprised that I received this as my first offer.”

Due to the fact that he’s only a freshman and still growing (6’3”, 180) and developing, it’s hard to project what position Martin will eventually play in college. Martin already possesses Division I size and speed, but his very best position at the next level could change as he develops. He can play wide receiver, running back, linebacker and defensive back contributed in many roles for the Leopards this season.

Regardless of where he plays, Martin plans on giving 110% effort at the next level.

“Pitt said they loved how I went hard every play, from blocking for Devin, to catching the ball,  they loved every aspect of my game,” said Martin. “I still think it’s too early to tell as of right now where I’ll play in college because of how young I still am, but whatever position it doesn’t matter, I’m ready to go hard at any position.”
